Add to these posts the many special events that are occurring in your parish during these months and you will have very interesting and uplifting content for your followers. Try to vary your type of Facebook posts by using a mixture of: your own photos, picture quotes, and videos and some links to other content.

Other content that you can share: The Pope’s Intention for the Apostleship of Prayer each month. Videos can be found here.

What else would you add to the list above?

Edit:  St. Joseph the Worker, May 1, was inadvertently left off this list.

You might consider adding St. Joseph the Worker [May 1] to this list.

Thank you, Joanne. Don’t know how I missed that. St. Joseph is one of my favorite saints.
