Your Parish Needs You and You Need Your Parish!

Registering in a parish is a declaration of your desire to be part of a Catholic community and a commitment to the life of the parish family. Being a registered parishioner makes things much easier when it’s time for infant baptism, school registration, weddings, being a sponsor for baptism or confirmation, and even funerals. New parishioners are always welcome!

Current members are encouraged to enroll in ParishSOFT My Own Church for online access to your family’s parish records.

If you are already a registered member of the parish, you are eligible for secure, online access to your family’s parish records, including your financial giving, with the My Own Church application using our ParishSOFT program! All you need to do is sign up for a My Own Church account using the link below. Remember, you must be a registered member of the parish to apply for My Own Church.
