Welcome, Friends!

We hope you will enjoy using this website that will give you the tools needed to perform your respective roles in the Archdiocese that all contribute to our common goal: to facilitate and cultivate an encounter with the person of Jesus Christ!

Here are our featured subjects this month:

We are at your service.

We want every parish in the Archdiocese of San Francisco to have easy-to-access and  unprecedented support. Both clergy and lay parish leaders now have an intentional channel to receive straightforward solutions and assistance. In addition to removing any unnecessary burdens (time, money, etc.) and providing the best tools and assistance, we hope to provide you with a fellow disciple who can help you tackle any issue or question you are facing. We will continue adding features to this site. 

Everything is better when you have someone to talk to.

Looking for Synod resources for parishes?

The Synod Website for the Archdiocese was created for the Faithful of the Archdiocese and is appropriate for parishioners and anyone interested in participating in the synodal process. Finally, there’s the official Synod website from the Vatican. Links are all below.

Flocknote is now free for all parishes!
