Archdiocesan Technology Task Force

The Chancery created an Archdiocesan Technology Task Force to create a five-year technology plan for parishes, schools, the Chancery, Cemeteries, along with Fulcrum and CCS/CHS.  This plan will embrace our tremendous opportunity to drive evangelization, increase collaboration, save money, improve security, and reduce risk.  Both the Presbyteral Council and the Finance Council, along with the Archbishop, are supportive of this initiative.  Comprised of PAAs, a priest, schools, subject matter experts and external technology experts, the Archdiocesan Technology Task Force had its initial meeting on September 10 and a second meeting on October 7.

Specifically, the Task Force will be looking at: enterprise resource planning with accounting products customer resource management products to manage parishioner data content management systems for digital interaction with parishioners and others Microsoft office master licenses and common email student information systems for schools learning management systems infrastructure and storage security solutions

As part of their work, the Task Force will be creating a survey and soliciting additional information from parishes and schools over the coming months.  Based on this input and additional work, the Task Force will be developing the plan to present to the Presbyteral and Finance Councils in the spring.  In the meantime, the Task Force will share additional information and updates. Members are also available to meet at any Deanery gatherings.
