The Church as a whole is becoming technologically-oriented, but many parish-level churches are struggling to keep up with the changing pace of communication. As young marketing professionals who are knowledgeable in the faith, we bring a unique blend of modernity and traditionalism to keep the Church relevant, without changing Her principles or values.
In order to survive, churches, schools, and other religious organizations need to implement evangelization-based marketing into their strategies to attract new parishioners and customers. We are here to help you in that mission. You could use any marketing company to help you do this, but our unique background of faith-based marketing here at Gloriam allows us to truly partner with you in your work of evangelization.
Gloriam is located in Wappingers Falls, NY (about an hour north of NYC), but most marketing services can also be offered remotely. Contact us for more details.
The purpose of Gloriam is to give glory to God by providing marketing services for the New Evangelization. Without Him, Gloriam is nothing but another marketing company. Our goal here at Gloriam is to serve God by serving His Church and to spread the gospel through marketing and events that will draw others to Christ.
Meet Our President
The president of Gloriam, Emily Ricci, currently works as the assistant director of Digital Communications at a Catholic college and previously worked at a church for over 7 years. She has a bachelor's degree in English and a master's degree in Theology. Her past church titles and responsibilities have included working as a Parish Office secretary, sacristan, Weekend Coordinator (ministry supervisor and event coordinator), youth minister, bulletin writer, coordinator of the baptism program, and Faith Formation teacher and assistant. After years in church work, Emily recognized the need for solid Catholic marketing and promotion, but realized that there were no marketing firms in the area that specialized in faith-based marketing. Therefore, she decided to take her unique skill set of marketing, writing, and church work and turn it into a business. The result is Gloriam. With her technical experience in ParishSoft, Flocknotes, Smart Tuition, and more to her experience-based skills in everything from running a youth group and organizing a liturgy to writing bulletins and making brochures, Emily is proud to offer her expertise to area churches and Catholic organizations. In her "spare" time, Emily teaches courses on New Testament at the collegiate level as an adjunct professor.
What does Gloriam mean?
Gloriam is part of the phrase "Ad majorem dei Gloriam," which means "For the greater glory of God." We took that as our motto here at Gloriam because everything we do with this company is to bring others to Christ and to glorify Him in all we do.
