For Parishes

My Own Church

Your ministries and communications rely on accurate parishioner information and tools that support full engagement in parish life. With My Own Church, parishioners and staff can access their user-friendly portal anytime, anywhere. My Own Church is a secure parishioner portal and mobile directory that improves accuracy while easing the administration of member records.

How it Works

My Own Church — part of ParishSOFT Family Suite — integrates seamlessly with your Family Directory, Religious Education, Ministry Scheduler, and Offering and Pledges programs to deliver a user-friendly portal that parishioners and parish staff can access anytime, anywhere from the web.

Accept a change or registration submitted through My Own Church, and it’s instantly accessible from the programs in your ParishSOFT Family Suite. There’s no need to re-key any data in your system!
