The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Singapore oversees a congregation of 360,000 Catholics with 32 churches spread across 5 districts in Singapore. We reach out and engage Catholics from the various age groups and walks of life through the following channels.
Why the need?
The Church needs a communications platform where she can send out information for security emergencies, address fake news, etc directly to her members in a timely manner.
Why Instant Messaging (IM)?
Instant Messaging is the ideal platform for pushing out important information quickly. Short of an actual telephone conversation, this is the next best thing as it addresses two main objectives on one platform:
- Authenticated and Direct messages from the Church
- Immediate Push content to personal devices
