MINISTRY SCHEDULER PRO (MSP)
MSP is a software package used by St. Patrick's to schedule over 200 ministers in various ministries of service to the Parish. It does not encompass all ministries but does schedule Eucharist Ministers, Lectors, Altar Servers, Greeters, Collection Counters, Sacristans, teachers for Children's Liturgy, Church cleaners, Hospitality Ministers and occasionaly special ministries.
Each minister is assigned a unique username and password. When a minister click's on the MSP graphic below, they are taken directly to the sign-in page. After entering his/her unique information, the minister can access his/her personal profile which includes dates the minister will not be available to serve and liturgies the minister might want to volunteer for.
MSP also allows ministers to request a substitute for a particular liturgy when a conflict occurs. The system notifies other individuals who are qualified for that specific ministry through e-mail and reports the request for a substitute. Another minister can then volunteer, again through e-mail, to accept the assignment and the system updates the schedule.
Ministry Scheduler Pro has provided a video tutorial to help you understand how to use the Web Terminal.
We hope you find this video tutorial useful and look forward to continuing to help you to use the Web Terminal to schedule your stewardship participation while still providing the ministers needed for our liturgies.
