Generally took this as an “off” day (with the usual components of sleeping in, leisurely reading of the morning paper, working out on weights and treadmill, and running errands). Also managed to get a significant amount of reading done, which is rare and welcome. However, I did spend about an hour trolling the internet for web-based church database management software. We need to bring the way we manage such things in the diocese (and probably in a lot of our parishes) into the current century. Seriously. It relates to the words “one church” in our mission strategy vision.
St. Michael’s has been using Powerchurch which keeps track of donations, membership lists and email capabiltiy among others.
I used PowerChurch in my last parish. But–then, at any rate–it didn’t have an online version. Maybe it does now. I’ll check it out.
