Tired of hunting down your parish statistics and filling out paper forms for the Kenedy™* Directory each year? Process your annual updatesin a fraction of the time with ParishSOFT.

"Save yourself a ton of administrative work, and let your software do the work for you."

- Sandy Riesberg, Diocese of Des Moines


Catholic Directory Manager (CDM) is the fast, easy way to compile and submit data for The Official Catholic Directory™* online. ParishSOFT calculates all of the Kenedy statistics you’ll need, so you can get accurate numbers for First Communion, individual Catholic members and more in seconds. Just log in to your diocese’s Catholic Directory Manager website, type your organization’s updates directly into the electronic form and submit. 

Parishes using ParishSOFT's church management software already have up-to-date staff and census data that they manage as part of their daily parish operations. Rather than manually preparing detailed paper forms and reports for the Directory, they can quickly and easily compile their census and organization data directly from their ParishSOFT databases. Using the Catholic Directory Manager, they update the data for the current year and submit their final report to the diocese online.
