Christ Himself wrote our business plan: “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.”  We are Catholic technologists who believe the disruption of modern technology and social networks can enable evangelization at a scale never before possible, enabling us to build global business that changes the world for the better.  
The Catholic faith has an engagement problem.  Only 7% of people at an average parish are actively engaged in their faith, yet that small number provides 80% of the time, talent, and treasure that flows to a parish.  Grow that number to 15 or 20% and you change the fate of a community.  We do this through OneParish, our flagship offering that creates a single point of engagement and discipleship for staff and parishioners, making it easy to get involved, stay involved, and support one another's faith journey.
