I am not receiving Group notifications, why not?

There are several things that need to be in place for Group notifications to work.  

  1. Are you signed into the myParish app with the same account that you joined the group with?
  2. Do you have notifications turned on within the phone settings for the myParish app?
  3. Do you have notifications turned on for the specific group within the myParish app “My Account” tab?
  4. Is your phone’s operating system up to date?  Check your phone settings for operating system updates.
  5. Is the myParish app up to date?  Check your app store for updates.
  6. Do you have a strong internet connection?  Check WiFi and Data.

How do I establish a moderator for a group?

Have your potential moderator join the group as any other parishioner would.  Once they have joined, accept them as a member, then copy their account email and paste it into the moderators page of the Group admin page.

Can we customize our App?

Yes you can! We will start by working with you to create a professional looking theme. Once your theme is complete, you control the content of your app. All messages, events, homilies, parish info, mass and confession times, and bulletins can be added/edited as you see fit. You can also automatically display parish news from your website, if your site has an RSS feed available.
