In an increasingly digitalized world, the use of new technologies is now commonplace in any sector with the clear intention of saving time in administrative matters. And the Church has been no less. Therefore, tools such as Ecclesiared have become essential to help thousands of parishes and dioceses that today have managed to update and professionalize all administrative procedures.
But why is it important for Dioceses to go digital?
– Improved efficiency of both the Diocese and parishes: Digitization allows a Diocese and its parishes to process information more quickly and accurately, which in turn improves the efficiency of our priests and also reduces errors. – Improved accessibility. Digitization allows parish and Diocesan information to be available online, which means that every pastor can access information conveniently, opening the digital doors to his parishioners. This makes the Diocese and its parishes more accessible to people who need a document or certificate and no longer have to wait hours.
– Improved communication. Digitization allows the Diocese to communicate with parishioners more effectively and efficiently. Social media, websites and e-newsletters are useful tools for reaching parishioners and keeping them informed. Likewise, communications between dioceses and their pastors are much easier.
– Greater reach. Digitization allows the Diocese to reach people outside its community. For example, a well-designed website can attract people seeking information about the Catholic faith and, in turn, introduce them to the parish. With the Internet, the boundaries of our neighborhoods disappear.
– Cost savings. Digitization reduces the costs of printing and mailing documents and materials. Thanks to Ecclesiared, we save economic costs but also labor costs by facilitating the organization of administrative work.
– Preservation of history. With a digital tool such as Ecclesiared, parishes secure the information they have in their paper books, thus protecting the history of their parishes from the passage of time and the durability of paper and ink.
