Solution

By working together, we can create more opportunities for ministry.

We partner with dioceses to bring uniformity and efficiency to how local parishes handle their administration, giving, reporting, and connections.

Equip your local parishes.

Parishes are on the front lines of ministry, and it’s important to make sure they have the tools and resources to accomplish their mission. That’s why denominations turn to us for both our cloud-connected church management software and our large team of knowledgable support and consulting personnel.

Equip your office staff.

Not only do we equip your local parishes with the best tools but also we enable your diocesan staff to coordinate the flow of information in a standardized way. When there’s consistency with how your parishes capture information, there can be consistency with how that information is reported.

Partners in the Great Commission

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

– Matthew 28:19-20, NABRE
