We’ve been crazy busy around here ever since we introduced the new eCatholic 5 and we think you’re going to really love what we’ve been working on…introducing Online Forms!

Online Forms are going make a big impact on your website and ministry in 3 ways:

  1. Automate – No more tracking down paper registrations and forms. Now you can automate your sign-up processes online.
  2. Simplify – Signing up for events, faith formation, volunteer opportunities and more has never been easier for your visitors.
  3. Engage – Because of their simplicity, online forms will make it much easier to engage your audience and increase participation.

Hilary Francis
eCatholic Evangelist

Hilary was born in Houston, Texas and grew up within a large Polish and Czech extended family. Huge Catholic weddings, funerals, and family reunions were the frequent social gatherings of her childhood.

She attended Texas A&M University and found a second home at St. Mary’s Catholic Center. She was an active member of St. Mary’s Theology of the Body ministry, The Revolution, and in 2010 utilized her talents and love of theater to direct her fellow students in a production of Karol Wojtyla’s (Blessed Pope John Paul II) The Jeweler’s Shop: A Meditation on the Sacrament of Matrimony Passing on Occasion into a Drama. She was inspired by Wojtyla’s poetry and performance as a form of cultural resistance during the Nazi occupation of Poland and believes in the necessity in today’s culture to redeem the media and the arts for Christ as an integral part of the New Evangelization.

After graduating Cum Laude in 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication and a Minor in Theater, Hilary spent some time working for the Theology of the Body Evangelization Team before marrying her husband, John Michael Francis, in January of 2012 in the little Czech community of Shiner, Texas.

Hilary resides in College Station with her husband John and the newest member of their family, Joseph Miguel Francis, born on November 10, 2013. She was welcomed to eCatholic in February 2014 and hopes to help spread the Gospel by enabling the Church to utilize modern media.
