What industry do you think your business is most related to?
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We are a Roman Catholic Church in the Archdiocese of San Francisco, California. We are situated in the cozy downtown of Mill Valley, in Marin County. We primarily gather to celebrate God's love, living among us in the Eucharist. The other six sacraments support our life together as we grow towards a deeper union with God's love.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We need a poster for our Ministry Fair and Pot Luck Picnic.
The Ministry Fair is an after-church event in which our ministries have tables and try to get people to sign up for different activities. The Picnic aspect is a bit misleading (and we're open to changing the title, though there is some equity in this title); families bring food so everyone can eat while they are looking at the various ministry presentations.
The Ministry Fair showcases the Ministries and Services the Parish provides. There are table displays and informational material and members are on hand to answer questions. We have more than 30 ministries/services in our Parish plus 10 special events the Parish offers every year. The goals of the event are to:
- Inform parishioners of these ministries
- Inspire them to participate and engage in a ministry that feels right for them
Our Ministries include: Altar Servers; Catholic Youth Organization (CYO); Children's Liturgy of the Word; Coffee and Donuts; Education on the Nature and Dignity of Women (ENDOW); Eucharistic Adoration; Lectors and Extraordinary Ministers; Parish Council; Mount Carmel Shop; Music Ministry; Random Acts of Catholics (RAOC); Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA); St. Vincent De Paul; Scripture Study; Taize Prayer
The "picnic" is essentially a "Bring Your Own Food" event. We'll ask people to bring appetizers, salads, main courses and desserts. We'll also have games and fun activities for kids.
The goal of this poster is to inspire people to come to the event and participate/engage with the broader community. Our key goal here is to get people to come to the Ministry Fair (and to bring food for the picnic). But the broader theme is something like "an invitation to find God's love in community" though I know that's a bit clunky. Feel free to tinker with headlines like "Find God's Love" or "Join Our Community" or "Find Joy in Community." We can perfect the line later. I've included some photography of the church, which is an iconic building. The poster must include the church logo.
