Dear <<First Name>>,
We are sending you this email to you as a “starter.”
This email is being sent individually, to each group of people in the diocese of <<Diocese>> on our list from everyone who has signed up to be involved in the Resistance.
So what you are looking at down below is the people in <<Diocese>> only who have responded to us here at Church Militant in Detroit, Michigan.
At this next stage, what we need to do is have each group of Resistance members in the diocese of <<Diocese>> identify who the Organizer will be.
This process will vary from diocesan affiliate to diocesan affiliate.
Some dioceses have no one who has volunteered to be an Organizer.
Some dioceses have one person who has volunteered to be an Organizer.
Some dioceses have more than one person who has volunteered to be an Organizer.
And some dioceses have one or more people who have not committed to be an Organizer, but have expressed an interest.
We have a large number of people who have expressed interest in wanting to know more about how they can be involved.
This follows up our general email from roughly 10 days ago outlining the broad picture of the Resistance movement.
The purpose of this email is to acquaint you with others in your diocese who have also expressed interest.
If you see an asterisk next to one or more people’s names, that indicates they have expressed interest in either being an Organizer or wanting to know more about being an Organizer.
So for this “starter” email, please get in touch with the others (you may actually already know some of the people) in your diocese via a group email.
At this early stage, it might be good to try and meet up with one another, make contact, get to know one another and so forth.
Again, this is happening so far in about 30 dioceses around the United States, as well as in a few countries.
Some dioceses have more than one person who has expressed interest, and that it is evident on the diocese list, because there is more than one name/email address.
Some have only one name (if you are reading this email, this is you).
If currently you are the only person on your list, don’t be concerned. There are a number of things for you to do that you will be hearing about from us.
What we would ask of the solo members is that when we set up the Church Militant Resistance Facebook page for your diocese, that you assume responsibility for it, at least for the time being.
For the dioceses that have more than one person at this point, we ask that among yourselves you volunteer/identify who would be a person who could at least get the ball rolling from an organizational standpoint regarding managing the Church Militant Resistance Facebook page and getting members in touch with one another.
What we strongly suggest for those who get this email is to be the first person in your diocesan affiliate to send out a group email to everyone on your list, and then that email can be the connection point initially that will eventually roll over to the Church Militant Resistance Facebook page. But for this brief start-up period, email will be the best method of contact.
You can all communicate with one another via your group email (be sure and hit “reply all” and not just “reply”).
Again, happy greeting one another and meeting other likeminded Catholics who love the Church and want to dedicate themselves to Her renewal.
We will be back in touch as a follow-up in roughly two weeks, but in the meantime, once the Organizer for your diocesan affiliate is identified, please contact us immediately and we will set up the Church Militant Resistance Facebook page for you, and you can get “down to business” in your diocese.
Thank you again for your love and care for Our Blessed Lord’s Holy Bride.
