Religious Formation Registration


Beginning with the 2019-2020 session Saint Mark Religious Formation registration will be available online. To register your child you will need to create your “My Own Church” account. This new online tool not only lets you update your family’s records and contact information, but also register your child for R.E and also access your financial giving history on the web! It’s convenient. It’s secure. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!

If you have not yet created your "My On Church" account you will need to do the following FIRST ...

1. In your web browser, go to and the ParishSOFT Welcome screen is displayed

** NOTE: This initial step
MUST NOT be done on a mobile device

2. Click the New User? Link to display the New User Registration Form:

4. Complete Steps 1 - 3 on the form. Required fields are marked with a red asterisk * .
    ** For Organization select Saint Mark, Virginia Beach from the drop down list.

Click Submit Registration.

6. The application attempts to verify your personal information. If the application can verify all of the information in your registration request, it will send you an email containing your login credentials (username and a temporary password) at the email address you provided in your registration.

7. After you have received the email with your login information, you may log in to your account and update your family members  information.

NOTE: If the application cannot verify all of the information in your registration request, it displays an acknowledgment message to notify you that your registration was received. Your registration request is then put on hold until an administrator can personally review it. Review time varies, but the process is typically completed within one to three days. Upon approval, you will then receive the email containing your login credentials (username and a
temporary password). Check your Spam or Junk E-mail folder if the email does not arrive within that time frame.

If the application cannot verify any of the information in your registration request, it displays a message to inform you that the registration was not successful. The message provides one or more options to help resolve the problem. Choose the option that best fits your particular circumstance.
