Parish life starts with relationships.
Pastoral Parish is a simple software program created to track Sacramental Preparation and Pastoral Care, so that you can focus on building a more personal community living fully alive in the Sacramental Life.
Simple to Use
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.
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 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.

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.
A Dashboard Done Right
When you log in, you have an immediate, up-to-date snapshot of everything going on in your parish. From upcoming events to the progress of couples in marriage prep to the next home visit, the information you need is easily accessible and readily available.
Automation Made Human
Whether it’s generating daily pastoral care reports, setting reminders for upcoming anniversaries, or sending out follow-up messages after a wedding or a funeral, Pastoral Parish offers automated features that foster a deeper connection with your parishioners.
A Module for Every Sacrament
Sacramental preparation has never been easier to track. All you need is a name and email, and your parishioners can enter or update all of their own information. From there, your team can easily track the progress bars to see exactly where each person is at on their Sacramental journey.
Customizable to Your Parish
We realize many parishes create their own Sacramental preparation programs. Have no fear, Pastoral Parish is fully customizable to whatever your needs and processes are so that your parishioners’ progress is always easy to track.
