Ministry Schedule Pro (MSP)
MSP is a software package used by St. Bernard to schedule over 300 ministers in various ministries of service to the Parish. It encompass all ministries in the areas of Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, Lectors, Altar Servers, Hospitality (Usher & Greeters), Sacristans, teachers for Children’s Liturgy, Church cleaners, Hospitality Ministers and occasionally 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.
