ParishSOFT Census

ParishSOFT Census is your trusted source for complete, accurate data for every family, sacrament, organization, staff member, and volunteer in your diocese. The Census program also provides the tools you need to manage staff positions and control administrative functions for your ParishSOFT Diocesan Suite. When you need to contact all business managers — or just those newly confirmed — in your diocese, Census makes it easy to find them and provides built-in communication and reporting tools so you can generate an email, letter, or report quickly and easily. And single-source records mean you see exactly the same information as staff at the parish see, so you can be confident that your information is as accurate as it can be. Includes the built-in Intelligent Query (IQ) program for data mining, queries, and robust reporting.

Census and Appeals

Browser-based, single-database technology to power Catholic evangelization and development at every parish and diocesan office.


ParishSOFT’s web-based solutions are designed with a simple philosophy: give the whole diocese a common platform that helps the diocese and parishes work together more effectively to accomplish the work of the Church.

To accomplish that synergy, ParishSOFT provides modular, integrated products for church management, diocesan management, and development, all of which connect to a single database. At any given moment, parish staff and pastors have access to the most up-to-date information about their parishioners and ministries. The diocese, empowered by the same real-time data, has accurate, on-demand information to support parishes; manage staff and organizations; and power ministry, evangelization, and appeals efforts. And with everyone on a common technology platform, the entire diocese gains a standard environment for centralized training, best practices, policies, and services. ParishSOFT  allows the diocese to help, serve, and collaborate with parishes like never before.
