A centralized database allows the Archdiocese and its parishes to know who people are and where they are on their faith journey to better meet their needs. For example, sacramental record tracking is often requested. We can understand member charisms, facilitate parish operations and connect people with resources. Importantly, it provides a means to track both parish and diocesan giving. Centrally, we also can run NCOA (National Change of Address) and address standardization across the database at no expense to the parish, which eases parish maintenance burdens.
