We’re pleased to help churches and other faith-based organizations like Thehourofmercy.org reach their entire audience across a variety of messaging channels including mobile text.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (PRWEB) April 30, 2012
Trumpia, the leading solution provider for Multi-Channel Marketing and Messaging, offering mobile text, email, voice broadcast, IM and social media in a single integrated platform, today announced that Thehourofmercy.org has launched a faith-based online program using Trumpia’s mobile text messaging solution to increase parishioner engagement.
The new web-based solution uses Trumpia’s Online Sign-Up Pages and mobile keyword features, giving parishioners the ability to opt-in to the program by submitting an online form or by texting a mobile keyword to 99000. Thehourofmercy.org offers different mobile keywords for suscribers to text-in based on their mobile carrier. These keywords include A123 for AT&T, V123 for Verizon, S123 for Sprint, T123 for T-Mobile and M123 for Metro PCS. Members who subscribe will receive inspirational messages and prayer reminders every day at 3:00 pm. They can also use the system to submit prayer requests to clergy members.
Thehourofmercy.org was founded to honor the practice of Saint Faustina who took time out every day at 3:00 pm for prayer and devotion in obedience to the requests made by Christ during apparitions that took place in the early 1930s. After the site was launched earlier this year, three churches decided to participate in the organization’s pilot program. With 800 parishioners who have chosen to opt-in, the program has been very successful.
“People are always on the run, so giving them the option to receive prayer reminders and inspirational messages on their phone – not to mention interact with their parish priest – makes perfect sense,” said Mike Elia, founder of Thehourofmercy.org. “Using Trumpia, the system lets parishioners benefit from a high level of community support while keeping pace with the realities of modern life. At the same time, it allows pastors and clergy to connect and engage with parishioners more often and more regularly.”
“Mobile text messaging and multi-channel marketing are powerful tools for connecting with your constituencies – whether it is a parish community or any other target group,” said Ken Rhie, co-founder and CEO for Trumpia. “We’re pleased to help churches and other faith-based organizations like Thehourofmercy.org reach their entire audience across a variety of messaging channels including mobile text.”
“Clergy find that mobile text messaging and Trumpia are a Godsend, allowing them to give people a convenient break from the day-to-day stresses of their lives – so much that they’ve even promoted it in weekly sermons,” added Elia.
Thehourofmercy.org was founded by a group of Catholic, social entrepreneurs who formed the organization to honor the practice of Saint Faustina who took time out every day at 3:00 for daily prayer, worship and spiritual rejuvenation. The 3:00 devotion was a result of private revelations during which our lord, Jesus Christ, requested that this devotion be spread to remind the world of God’s great love and Mercy. The organization’s mission is to evangelize the message of God’s love and mercy and spread the 3:00 prayer devotion.
