About Ministry Scheduler

We are pleased to welcome you to our Liturgical Ministry team at St. Josaphat!

Ministry Scheduler Pro

(or, “MS") is our online scheduling system that automatically schedules assignments for each of our Liturgical Ministries at St. Josaphat, based on your profile preferences. You can also request a substitute through MS if you cannot make it to an assignment (we really appreciate as much notice as possible please). You can specify things like:

  • Dates that you are unavailable (vacation, sports, holidays etc)
  • Preferred frequency - how many times a week/month you wish to be scheduled
  • Which Masses and services that you prefer (you can rank these!) and those you are unable to serve 
  • How you wish to be notified of your assignments or changes in schedule (text, email or both)
  • Bind family members to schedule everyone at the same services 
Once you are logged in, you can click on the Help tab at the top of the screen to see a short video and printable guide that will explain step by step how to update your information.

Parents of Altar Servers

Please make sure your child knows that when they arrive to serve at Mass, the FIRST thing they should do is check in.
There is a Ministry Scheduler binder in the sacristy that will list assignments for each Mass with a signature line next to their name. Altar Servers should sign in before getting their robe. If your child is filling in for someone, they can sign their own name next to the unavailable child’s name. These sheets are recorded in your child’s service profile at the parish - if your child does not sign in, the service is not recorded.
