Launching myParish app: Although your app is available as soon as you start to customize, your "Launch Date" will be the Sunday you promote the app to your parish members.

Keep in mind that buttons require and RSS feed; Not just a website.  RSS feeds typically end in .rss or .xml

A Look All Yours

Design the background graphic for your parish’s app yourself, or let our designers help you through this process.
Please select which option you would like below, then proceed to upload an image.

Upload your own image and modify it to suit your parish’s preferences, then approve and submit it for integration in to your app.
or
If you prefer to have one of our graphic designers work with you to edit and modify your image, please upload your photo along with your parish information and contact person.

Step 1) Upload Image >

Tip 1: Colorful
You can modify the colors of any photo but having something with rich and vibrant colors to start with generally ends in a nicer looking image.

Tip 2: Easily Identifiable
Pick an image of something that people will easily recognize. This can be interior or exterior. The goal here is to have something parishioners will associate as being a part of your parish. Also, the image will be blurred, so do not select images with the intent of the user identifying details.

Tip 3: Vertical Orientation
Since smart phones and the app itself are designed to be taller than wide, starting with a tall portrait shape image works best. However, wide images can be cropped.

Tip 4: Image Blur
Blurring the image is a vital part of the app design for the ascetics as well as functionality. A soft background without edges or details is key to the app interface visibility and therefore ease of operation. So like it is stated in Tip 2, it is important to have an image that is recognizable even when blurred.

Step 2) Edit Image

Adjust the zoom, position and settings, or select a filter below and adjust the sliders to edit the how your image will appear.

Zoom & Position


Reposition the image below by clicking and dragging the image or using the zoom slider.

Step 3) Approve Image

Once you are satisfied with your image as seen below for use as your app background, please approve and submit. Your app will be created within 3-5 days and you will be notified when it is ready to view. (NOTE: Your App Launch Kit will also contain a banner and graphics incorporating your app background image.)

If the image you have uploaded, as shown below, is the one you want our designers to modify for use as your parish’s app background, then please approve and submit below with the required info. (NOTE: Prior to submission of your image, please be sure to review the background image guidelines provided under Step 1, in order to minimize the turnaround time of creating your app.)

I approve this image for use as the app background image for our parish.

NEXT STEP: Training Upon submission of your App Design, our designers will review your design and may contact you for final approval of your app. In 3 days you will be receiving an email with instructions for proceeding with the Training portion of the App Startup process. If you have any questions in the meantime, please don’t hesitate to give us a call at 1-800-997-8805.
