Liturgical Ministry: Submit Schedule

The 4Q2017 schedule is now available! If you find any inconsistencies between your schedule and the constraints that you entered into your profile before the due date (August 11th), please send an e-mail to "system_administrator" at ministerscheduling.com describing the problem so that it can be investigated.

The schedule assigns specific Mass readings for ministers in the Reader ministry. The order which ministers are listed on the schedule indicates the reading that the minister is assigned; the minister listed first does the first reading and the minister listed second does the second reading. In addition, individual assignment listings for Readers include the number one or two in parenthesis next to the ministry name to indicate the assigned reading.

Scheduling System Upgrade

We are pleased to announce the upgrade to our scheduling service which has gone live.  The upgrade includes several new features and an improved interface for using the features.  Some highlights of the new features included in this upgrade are:

  1. The ability to opt out of email sub requests for masses that you do not normally attend.
  2. The elimination of the blackout period of two days before the mass date for issuing sub requests.  The new service has no blackout period.
  3. You can now take assignments that are available either because they were unassigned when the schedule was prepared or offered for substitution by the assigned minister right from your personal account.  You no longer have to find that request for substitution email to take an assignment or wait until you get to church to check for unassigned positions.  Every minister is encouraged to use his/her account to find available assignments just before heading to mass.
  4. Transfer your monthly assignment calendar to another compatible calendar using the new calendar export feature of the service.

A more complete description of the new service showing the new interface for accessing the features is found at the following link:

The information below describing the service upon which this upgrade builds is being retained because it still applies to the new service. 

Please report any difficulties you encounter using the new service at:

or send email to "system_administrator" at ministerscheduling.com describing the difficulty you encountered. Help will be forthcoming.
