Stay Informed with Flocknote Texts
flocknote is a texting service to keep our parishioners and friends Up-to-Date. We can send a text to your cell phone to remind you of things that are upcoming, a change or cancellation of an event, an urgent message, or a notice that didn't make it in our weekly bulletin or this website. The only fees to join flocknote are the fees your cell phone provider/plan charges for text messages.
To Join flocknote: On your cell phone send a text to 84576 with the capital letters VCSTMS in the body of the text. You will be prompted to join our parish flocknote service. If you are unfamiliar with a TTJ process (Text To Join), then contact Terri Yohman for assistance at our parish office (330-483-3808 or email her at [email protected]).
Over 300 people are using this service in our parish and it has been very effective in keeping people informed. Stay up-to-date with the St. Martin FLOCK with flocknote.
