NEWCAS Parish and School

Overview & History

NEWCAS (NorthEast Wisconsin Catholic Software) is the name for the standardized computer solutions initiative for parishes and schools in the Diocese of Green Bay. There are three different computer programs included as a part of this initiative. All programs are available via the internet.

  • ParishSoft is the program that tracks families and individual members of the parish. This family information is used as a basis for a Religious Education program, a volunteer tracking program, a contributions program and a pledge program. All are capable of sending email communications for participants in each area of ministry.
  • PowerSchool is the program that tracks students and their families for schools in our Diocese. It provides online grading tools for teachers and schedules classes.
  • Great Plains is the online accounting program provided for the schools and parishes.

These programs will eventually "talk" to each other to share demographic information on families (address changes, phone number and e-mail address changes, etc.). The updates are also shared with the Bishop's Appeal list at the Foundation.
