Roman Catholic Diocese of Tulsa hires Blue Clover
The Roman Catholic Diocese of Tulsa has hired Blue Clover—a versatile, On and Off-Line Branding TM firm based in San Antonio with offices in Dallas—to coordinate its marketing communications plan including a website, branding/identity development and fundraising for special projects the Diocese will be launching in the coming months.
“We feel we are truly blessed to be selected by the Catholic Diocese of Tulsa to help them with some very important initiatives, not only because it’s a great opportunity for Blue Clover, but also because of the spiritual knowledge and grace we will gain as a partner in this project,” said José B. Sena, president, CEO and founding partner, Blue Clover. “We are privileged to establish a partnership with this Diocese, and look to a long mutually-beneficial initiative.”
Carl Thompson, a partner in Blue Clover, added “The greatest thing about this opportunity is that we are literally going to be called on to provide all of our branding services both on and off-line. This is always very exciting for us. The fact that we are a truly a multi-cultural marketing firm with Hispanic ownership was also very important to the Diocese.”
The first project is already underway and will be announced later this year. It will include a multi-media branding campaign targeting faithful Catholics nationwide.
