Before You Begin

Before you can create sacramental registers, you must set up your sacrament options. On the File menu, click Sacrament Setup. Click Sacrament Place Names and Addresses to add the places where sacraments occur.

Then go to Sacrament Tab Names and make sure you've defined a name for each sacrament on the Sacrament Definitions tab. These are the link names that display in the Sacramental Registers window.

Tracking Multiple Sacramental Registers

If needed, you can track the sacrament records of other parishes. For example, you might maintain sacraments for missions or smaller parishes in a cluster.

 To set up sacramental registers for more than one church
  1. On the File menu, click Sacrament Setup > Sacrament Tab Names.
  2. On the Sacramental Register Options tab, select Our Data Contains Sacramental Register Information for More than One Church.
  3. Select up to 10 churches whose sacramental records are included in your database.
  4. Click Rebuild Sacramental Registers.


When you click Rebuild Sacramental Registers, all existing member information is removed and rebuilt. Non-member information isn't affected.

If you click Cancel before the process is completed, all sacramental register information for existing parishioners is lost, and you must run the process again.


Once you've set up the register options, you're ready to create your sacramental registers and add sacrament records.
