History

Newman Catholic Community is a church with a unique style, since it operates as a full Parish and campus ministry center for students at UNC Chapel Hill. Their mission is to spread the word of Jesus Christ and establish faith throughout their community, which includes students, alumni, parents, faculty, and parishioners, through spiritual work and outreach. They always work to find ways that could better serve and reach their entire community both young and young at heart.

Challenge

With Newman Catholic Community Church being a dual-purposed facility, it can be hard effectively serving all of their congregants and achieving unity. Being such a large and diverse church, they knew a tool that could allow them a way to keep growing and fundraising would be vital, in serving their student parish. Newman Catholic Community wanted to find a way that would keep each member, no matter their age, connected and also to find a process to manage the church’s data smoothly.

Solution

Since being introduced to Realm, Newman Catholic Community realized the quality of their data has improved along with the ease of access to information. Members of the church can log into Realm and edit their own information, which is not only quicker, but helps the administration team significantly. Realm also makes fundraising and managing events almost effortless for Newman Catholic Community. They use groups to join groups to make it easier to reach and communicate their goals; they’re able to see how many tickets they have available within the app, too. They have everything they need all in one place. Realm has granted Newman Catholic Community a ministry tool to engage with each other and remain visible to each other, even in such a large church.
