Nexus: Where the Church And Tech Converge.

A nexus is a connection, or a link, and a convergence implies a meeting point that’s not static…. It’s a union of two things with a common interest or focus. There’s energy in a convergence. Where the Church and Tech converge—that’s a powerful place! The Church, with the power of the Holy Spirit, working through the best and most powerful tools humankind has to offer, can truly achieve great things.

This year, we’re christening the ParishSOFT Users' Conference Nexus. At Nexus, ParishSOFT users will experience more than just a showcase of products and training events. Our goal is for parish and diocesan staff—from bookkeepers, to administrative assistants, to priests, to diocesan CFOs—to engage with tool, resources, and each other in ways that will energize their work, their ministry, and the Church.

Master Your Software

Many of our workshops focus on specific ParishSOFT products. Optimize your software use, train new staff members, and see what's new from ParishSOFT. We also offer the popular Hands-on Training classes where we provide the laptops and allow you to interact with software during the training session.

Network with Other Users

In 2015, more than 300 of our users joined us for the users' conference. Nexus is a great place to connect with Catholics like you from dioceses and parishes across the country. Talk with each other, and learn what's working in other dioceses and parishes.

 

Rejuvenate with Fellow Staff

Think of Nexus as a special time away from the office where you can not only gain knowledge and skills, but also find spiritual refreshment. Keynote sessions and daily masses allow time for reflection and a chance rekindle your love for what you do and your fervor for serving the Church.
