Parishioner Data Management and Privacy

Like all archdiocesan initiatives, our mission is to lead souls to heaven through Jesus Christ, and the use of technology as a means is no exception. By maintaining a centralized database, we know who the faithful are; where they are on their faith journey; understand their charisms and active ministry participation; can facilitate parish operations and financial record keeping; and communicate with parishioners.

The ParishSOFT platform assists parishes in keeping track of parish membership, sacramental records, religious education classes and giving for contribution statements. It also allows for a closer relationship between Central Services and parishes by sharing commonly used reports, such as parish demographics, involvement and giving trends.
