In San Francisco, Catholic Church starts digital collection plate
from NBC News
In San Francisco, where technology is almost a religion, the Catholic Church is moving beyond the collection plate and weekly newsletter. The Archdiocese of San Francisco is partnering with Evergive, a service that starting on Friday, May 15, will let Bay Area Catholics donate money, share prayers and more from their computers or smartphones. The Catholic Church has already embraced social media at the highest levels. But this technology could help local churches, where money still is dropped into collection plates and announcements come in neatly folded newsletters.
