Parish Online Intention Cart
Free up time for your front-line office staff by allowing parishioners to request Intentions and Memorials online and submit offerings via credit card through your parish website.
Embedding a live view of your Intention Calendar onto the parish website will enable your parishioners to be able to schedule their intentions themselves from home. After choosing an available Mass day and time, they will be prompted to enter their intention, contact, and payment information. Staff approval is required before selections become permanent on the parish intention calendar.

We've taken our cloud based solution to the next level!
We've developed the technology that provides you the ability to take Mass intentions requests online, via your own website, and supports credit card payments at checkout... from any device, computer, tablet or mobile phone!
Using a unique link to your Parish Management Software by Mass Intentions Online account, your parishioners would have the ability to see an open date, click to request an intention, and enter the required information. The intention would be added to their intentions basket (cart) at which time they could continue to add intentions or Memorials into the basket (cart) or checkout.
A merchant account (credit card processing company) is required to accept credit card payments.
We've partnered with CardConnect, a First Data company to provide the financial gateway and merchant processing at a discounted rate for all of our MIO online family. Not only will you be able to take credit cards via the shopping cart, you'll also have the ability to take credit cards for any parish transaction.
We've published a link to a co-branded information and signup site. You can use this link now to get a jump start on your application process:
When the intention is selected, it is placed on "hold" on your Mass intentions calendar. Upon successful checkout (payment approved), The parish receives an email notification from MIO saying a transaction has been completed and is awaiting review.
An email notification will be sent to you to view and approved the intention; viewing the intention to insure it does not contain offensive or vulgar language.
When you approve the intention, it is recorded and your records and financials are updated in MIO and the credit card charge is completed. MIO will record the transaction as if you entered in into the system yourself including the logging of the intention receipt.
The "live" feed from your MIO account on your website will automatically be updated with the new intention.
Should the transaction credit card be declined or you reject the intention, any intentions the requestor made will be released back into the system and will be available again. Should you reject the requested intention, a field is available for you to enter a reason the request was denied.
All settings used in your MIO system will be applied to the live online version (multiple intentions, family limits, etc.) and, you'll have the ability to set additional limits for the shopping cart.
A control panel for the credit card processing will give your church the options of:
- Set the base intention offering.
- The ability for the requester to add an additional donation amount.
- Adding the credit card fee to the requester at checkout. Or, optionally, asking the requester to pay the credit card transaction fee (automatically calculate).
You'll be able to search for the intention as you normally would, it will be included in your data export transaction list, and all other areas MIO records transactions.
