"The Diocese of Covington contracted with Bannon & Associates to conduct our parish offertory enhancement program in 2007 and 2008.  I have recently had the opportunity to review offertory enhancement programs provided by three other companies.  After working closely with Bannon & Associates for two years, it was evident that several critical items were not included in these proposals:  Personal involvement of key parish leadership; training of pastors and parish committees, comprehensive follow-up strategies, the emphasis on the need to give vs giving to need.  Materials were too glossy for a program that is asking parishioners to increase their giving.    If any Diocese of parish is considering exploring an offertory program, I highly recommend that Bannon and Associates be given the opportunity to present their program.  It is comprehensive, challenging, and  can be implemented within a reasonable time frame."
