Show Mass Times in Parish Life

Parishioners can view Mass information in Parish Life on mobile devices. You can add Mass dates and times that display for members to view and select to attend.

In this process, you'll define your weekly Masses, then upload them based on a date range. It's up to you if you want to post one week of Masses at a time or an entire year, for example.

You can upload other information during this process, but this procedure focuses on uploading Mass times only.

  1. On the Information tab, click Parish Life.
  2. Select Upload Member Information, and click Next.
  3. Select Upload Changes and Upload Mass Times. You can clear any other options you don't want to upload right now. Click Next.
Define Your Masses
  1. In the top grid, click the add icon green plus sign, and enter the weekly Mass information.
    Tip: Members will see all of this information. If needed, the Note field can serve as additional information that parishioners need to know, such as the Mass location, language, or intention.
  2. If needed, enter a number for the Maximum Number of Attendees. This is useful if you have limited space for a certain Mass.
    Note: Members will see the number of spaces available for each Mass. They can confirm attendance for the number of members in their family plus five guests. If you don't enter a maximum, it shows that there is unlimited space available.
  3. Repeat this for each Mass you want to include.
Upload Masses for a Date Range
  1. In the top grid, select the Masses you want to post.
  2. Select the date range to post the Masses. You can post as many weeks as needed. But remember, members will see a list of these in Parish Life, so you may want to keep it short for mobile readability.
  3. To automatically add the selected Masses for the date range you entered, click Add to Upload List.
    The Masses are added to the List of Masses to Upload grid.
  4. Review the list of Masses to upload, and make any necessary changes, if needed.
  5. Click Next.
  6. If needed, enter your parish contact information.
  7. When you're ready, click Upload.

Mass information displays to members in Parish Life under Mass Times. Members can select which dates and times they plan to attend. Once a Mass date/time has passed, it is automatically removed from this process and from Parish Life.
