How we update?

The Catholic Directory depends on people in the Catholic community to keep information up-to-date for everyone to have easy access to finding mass, churches, diocese, schools, ministries, and other Catholic organizations. Our staff works diligently with Church administrators and parishioners to maintain accurate listings as changes occur.

Who updates the listings?

Community
Anyone in the Catholic community using the directory may do their part to submit updates with new information as changes occur. Helpful parishioners play a huge role in keeping the database up to date. Simply look over your church’s listing and if needed, click the ‘Update this Listing’ button and fill out any information as a ‘Guest’. The update will appear as soon as it is approved and verified by our staff. Guests can also submit changes easily using our free iPhone and Smartphone Apps.

Administrators
Church administrators or representatives have the opportunity to apply for ownership of their church’s listing. After they have been approved by our staff, the administrator will be able to make changes directly to their listing as well as approve changes submitted by others.

Our Staff
At The Catholic Directory, our staff reviews and verifies all submitted changes every day. With 122,000 listings, changes are constantly being made. However, we also send email reminders to church administrators during important dates like Easter, Summer, and Advent seasons to review their information and make any necessary changes.
