PDS Parish Life

An online parishioner portal for anytime access to your parish.

Parish life doesn’t happen strictly inside the walls of your church. Give your parishioners ways to connect and contribute to your parish through the Parish Life parishioner portal. An easy sign-up process linked from your parish’s website makes it quick for your parishioners to start using Parish Life.

A directory that’s never out of date.

  • With parishioners updating their own information as needed, your parish directory stays more up-to-date.
  • Parishioners and parish staff can search for and view others in the parish family, view their contact information if shared, and reach out to stay connected.
