A Gift to Priests

Parishes regularly have new priests and new pastors. With Pastoral Parish, they can get the lay of the land at a church before ever setting foot in the building. Less surprises means an easier transition and a smoother road to a thriving parish.

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 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 is different than any other church software available. 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.

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

The 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. Pathways 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. This unique and impressive feature saves the 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 a day. 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. 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.
