Family Formation Religious Education (Summer Intensive or School-Year), Sacrament of Confirmation, and Youth Ministry
For registered parishioners, St. John of Rochester will be using ParishSOFT for online religious education registrations which allows busy families to sign up easily at their convenience.
St. John of Rochester uses ParishSOFT when we register your family as members of the church. We are giving families access to their Family Data, and families will now register their children online for religious ed classes through ParishSoft.
To get access to your ParishSoft account requires each family to create their My Own Church (MOC) Parishsoft account logon. Below are step by step directions to set up your own ParishSOFT logon.
