Publicity problems

We had our St Elijah Seculars Community meeting last night and we were talking about how to make the meetings better known. We started at the beginning of this millennium with four members, then grew gradually until eventually we split and gave birth to a new independent group, mindful of the fact that St Teresa always favoured smaller communities of around a dozen or so. Since the split we have lost members, and we are acutely aware of the need to make our meetings better known. Posters in churches tend to be taken down fairly soon after they have been put up. People use the internet of course nowadays to publicise themselves, but that is not straightforward where local groups are concerned. Leaflets are useful, and we are currently in a phase of re-design. Two of our members heard about Carmel through leaflets in the back of churches. One of them is myself, and I vividly remember the plain green leaflet which had a phone contact number on it. I phoned the contact, and that was the beginning of my journey into the beauties of Carmel.
