Timeline

Thanks for your interest in marketing your event at Cathedral! We appreciate your hard work in putting together this event.

The sooner you submit your event, the more time we have to advertise it! Beth Awalt, Communications Coordinator, will send out email reminders a few times each month for submitting your events. If you would like to be added to her email list, contact her at beth.awalt@cmoq.org.

If your event is organized by a Cathedral ministry, you have three options in submitting your event for marketing

TIER ONE – submitted with one weeks’ notice
Tier one includes 1 social media post each on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, as well as a calendar event on the website

TIER TWO – submitted with two weeks’ notice
Tier two includes 2 different social media posts each on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, as well as a calendar event on the website

TIER THREE – submitted by the 15th of each month, for marketing beginning in the following month
Tier three includes 3 different social media posts per month (3 each on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram), a calendar event on the website, a Facebook event, and inclusion in the bulletin, website homepage, and narthex / Parish Center bulletin boards for at least 1 week.

How to Make Your Event Successful

  1. Allow time to promote your event. It is recommended to start planning the marketing for your event 6-12 weeks ahead of time, in order to allow the most people to learn about the event.
  2. Submit your events for posting on Cathedral’s social media. On average, one ‘post’ (which includes a post on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) reaches between 600 and 1,200 people. If you elect for Tier Three (above), you will easily reach thousands of people!
  3. Spread the word yourself! The best tactic to encourage folks to attend any event is through word-of-mouth. Share the posts from Cathedral’s social media on your personal social media accounts, email and text your friends, and let people know as you’re talking to them.
  4. Feeling panicked? Let us know! If, for any reason, you are feeling nervous about the response for your event, please reach out to Beth Awalt, Communications Coordinator. Let’s work together to continue making your event a success!

Partner Events

We are pleased to offer support to Cathedral partners and friends in advertising their events on our Community Submissions calendar. The process to submit events to our calendar include:

  • Submit your event here. Please submit events at least two weeks before your event.
  • Email Beth Awalt, Communications Coordinator, to share your connection to Cathedral and that you submitted the event for review.
  • About once a week, we will feature one upcoming “Community Submissions” event on our Facebook, and then link to the Community Submissions calendar. On average, this post will reach about 600 people!
