Feature Event & Sharing to other Parishes and Diocese

Feature this event

When this box is checked, the event will show up at the top of your events page in a special featured area, regardless of date. 

Show on Neighbouring Parish Sites

When checked, your parish is making this event available to other parishes in your diocese that have chosen your parish as a Neighbouring Parish in their Site Settings. (Read more about Neighbouring Parish settings here)

Diocesan Wide Event

Checking this box makes your event available to your diocese (upon review and approval by the diocese) to potentially be added to the "Events around the Diocese" feed on all other parish sites within your diocese. 

Intended Demographic

You can type in what the intended demographic for your event is, such as "All are welcome", "Youth 13-18", etc.

Set Location

  • If your event is taking place at your Parish, then checking the "Use the Parish as your Location" box will automatically set the address for your event with the parish info. 
  • If your event takes place elsewhere, you can "Assign a Location" either using one of the other locations already existing in the "Locations" tool (see Intro to Locations for more info), or click "Create New Location" to add a new location to your event if the address you need isn't already available to be chosen.
