A part of the diocesan strategy
"ChurchDesk is a core part of our strategy to improve parish work and reach more people by using the possibilities from digital tools. We came from a need of supporting our administration with better coordination and service planning but we're convinced that technology will become a vital part of our mission and outreach as a church," continues Kappes.
