Intentional Community

 

The simple fact is that Parish renewal starts with building personal relationships with every parishioner. We created Pastoral Parish to simplify administrative tasks so that priests and parish teams can focus on knowing their parishioners personally, accompanying those souls, and together building a community fully alive in the Sacraments.

No-Surprise Marriage Prep

Easily track all marriage preparation information from baptismal certificates to the choice of readings.

Easier Onboarding for New Priests

When a new priest is assigned to the parish, he can receive access to Pastoral Parish and see every person in Sacramental Preparation and Pastoral Care before ever setting foot in a building.

Pastoral Care Tracking

Check notes from previous visits, update a parishioner’s status after a visit, and stay up-to-date on who has requested or needs a visit.

Many Hands, Light Work

Give variable access to the different members of your Parish Team so that whether they are making a Pastoral Visit, teaching a sacramental preparation class, or leading a group, they can update important information on the fly.

Simple Funeral Planning

Through emailed access links, you can work with families to plan funerals in about a day and a half or even plan funerals years in advance.

Anniversary Reminders

Your dentist office never misses your birthday. With Pastoral Parish you’ll be notified on sacramental anniversaries (as well as the birthdays) of your parishioners so that you can send them a personal note.

Manage All Your Weddings with Ease

How Our Lady of Grace uses Pastoral Parish to keep everything on track.

Keep it simple

Parish life can quickly become overwhelming. Priests and Parish Teams alike can find they are bogged down by paperwork and don’t have time to be really present to the people they serve. Pastoral Parish was created so that you can spend less time tracking down paperwork or information, and more time being engaged in the lives of your parishioners.

I See A lot of Potential for Ministry as a Priest

I love the service and see a lot of potential for ministry as a priest in a few months. I’ll definitely be looking into getting a subscription upon Ordination.

You Treat This as Ministry Above All

You are responsive to feedback, constantly seeking to improve your product, and you treat this as ministry above all.

Pastoral Parish is a great help…

To see at a glance the weddings coming up and how far along the couples are in their marriage preparation requirements and liturgy planning. With several of us on staff ‘touching’ each wedding, it is a great way for all of us to be on the same page and access the information we need.

Designed by a priest

 

One of the reasons Pastoral Parish is unlike any other Parish software, is that it wasn’t developed in a cubicle, it was coded with love by a nerd in a rectory. Drawing on his own boots-on-the-ground experience, Fr. Josh McCarty built the software and app to meet his needs as a pastor and the needs of his entire parish team.

FAQ

 

What if my parish can’t afford Pastoral Parish?

We want Pastoral Parish to be used by any and all priests and parishes because we firmly believe that it can greatly help them with pastoral care and sacramental preparation. If affordability is an obstacle, then we will work with you to see how Pastoral Parish can fit in your budget.

Is it an app?

Pastoral Parish is a web application that can be accessed through the internet. Any device that can run Chrome web browser and is connected to the internet can access Pastoral Parish. This includes smartphones, tablets, and desktop computers.

Why do I need another piece of church software when we already have software to keep our church records?

Pastoral Parish tracks the individual care of the person, the preparation for a sacrament, progress along the way, anniversaries, and follow-up. Unlike any other software on the market, we will help you to keep track of and reach out to ALL those you encounter in your parish. Other church software simply keeps records of the past facts: who registered, who gave, what the date of the baptism was, etc. We help you with all of your day-to-day needs and even help you chart the future.

Is the Pastoral Parish Software only for the priest to use, or can the church staff also have access to it?

With the Team Plan, your Priest/Pastor can add as many users to the software as he wants so they can all work together to provide the best care of their parishioners and communicate in a timely manner, keeping all records current and up to date. Pathway Links can also be created that will allow families and couples to input their own information for funerals, baptisms and weddings that are in the planning process. These unique and impressive features save your Priest time and allows for the information to be accurate and spelled correctly on printed programs, sacramental certificates and marriage licences.

What if I have a problem with the software working properly?

If there is an error or problem with the software working properly, report your difficulty to the Pastoral Parish team by emailing Pastoral Parish . We will try to respond within 24 business hours. We hope to fix any bugs as soon as possible.

Is it difficult to get started using Pastoral Parish? Does it take a long time to enter our parish information into the software?

No, getting started with Pastoral Parish is not difficult. If you have the Team Plan, our team can help you export member data from your existing database and upload it into Pastoral Parish in a few simple steps. After your information is exported, it takes about 10 minutes to get your data imported.

Benefits

Pastoral Parish helps you build stronger relationships with your parishioners. From helpful reminders to sending out personal follow-ups, to letting you know who has requested a pastoral visit, to storing all of the important day-to-day information in one place, the app is designed to streamline administrative tasks so you can spend less time stressing over paperwork, and more time being present to your parishioners.
