Adding An Event

This article will show you how to add an event to your website's "Events Calendar". Let's get started...

Step 1: Navigate To The "Events Calendar" Section

Accounts Events Calendar

You can either use the tabs at the top, or just click the "Events Calendar" icon on the Dashboard. If you don't see this icon, you need to ask your main website administrator to grant you access to edit the events calendar.

Step 2: Bring Up The "Add Event" Form

Add Event

You have two options to add an event:

  • Click the green "Add Event" button in the top-right corner, or
  • Click on a date in the calendar, then click the green "Add Event" button on the popup that appears.
Step 3: Add The Event

Event Title

We'll start by giving your event a title. For example: "Parish Council Meeting".


Event Calendar

Next, we'll select which events calendar (or both) to display this event: "Parish Events" or "Around The Diocese". For most events, you'll only select "Parish Events"; however, if you are adding an event that parishioners from other parishes are likely to want to attend (like a bake sale, or Christmas concert), you'll want to select both calendars, and if the event is hosted by another church, you'll select only "Around The Diocese".



You'll now add the event location & address. By default, we've entered your main church location's information here.



Next, give your event a description. This is an optional field.


Date Time

Select the date for the event, as well as the start time and end time.



Finally, if this is a regularly occurring event, we'll tell ParishPal how often we want the event to repeat.


Add Event

Now that the form is complete, we'll double check our information and then hit the "Add Event(s)" button.
