It is only when you select a particular parish in its system that the app opens up to valuable content like Mass Times.  The advantage? My Parish App will search your location for Catholic churches that are in its system which are around you. With so many churches in its system, and depending on the location you’re in, this location finder is tremendously helpful. Download the app, select the hamburger menu on the upper left corner and choose a church in our location or type in the zip code you’re searching (if you’re not in the location yet). The app will serve up a listing of churches. If you don’t find a selection of churches in your location, choose any church (it doesn’t matter which one) and the home page opens up to the content for that church. Now select the “Discover Mass” icon and type in the zip code, or city/State to do a search. Mass times are provided by, so think of MyParishApp as providing an app access to

One Parish Catholic AppLooking for a more personally engaging app that actually connects you with a local parish? The app, One Parish, is designed to help you do just that, even if it’s a virtual one!

First, let’s talk about the real parish you’re looking for. Open One Parish (Free) Apple   |Android and a geo-locator map shows all the Catholic churches in your area. The app insists that you choose a parish before your proceed any further. Once you are connected to a parish, it’s YOURS (unless you wish to change it, which is easy to do). In your parish’s portal, you have all the information you need to start engagement–most notably a Mass schedule, contact information and a link to the parish web site. Because this app is relatively new, not all parishes are up and running with other elements on the app like a parish directory and pastor’s message. But the information at hand is quick to find, and you should have what you need to select a place and time for Easter Mass. Do double-check with the parish web site for accurate schedules as many parishes do not keep updated with the national program (Mass Times) which collects their data.

Of course, it is important to go beyond your Easter experience. Or perhaps you already are engaged with your local parish but are looking for something to help deepen your faith life or get more involved with the parish community. That’s where the educational elements of One Parish come in to help. Hit the “Daily Faith” tab and you’ll get Mass Readings and Saint of the Day information. Enjoy listening to or watching video of enriching homilies and reflections from the popular Word on Fire ministries. Perhaps the pastor at your parish posted a reflection–he can do that through this app if his parish is connected. And you can listen to Catholic Talk Radio programming and read Twitter messages from Pope Francis (even if you don’t have a Twitter account). While there are other apps out there with more faith content, this one gathers components of actual parish life with an actual faith community that is meaningful to you. If your parish is affiliated with One Parish, you will see detailed content on the families involved in that church, the parish’s calendar of events, a means of making your donation through the app’s donation portal and much more.
