For Business Managers:
Frequently Asked Questions

Also see:


What are DallasCatholic.org emails?

Each employee of the diocese will be receiving a new @dallascatholic.org email - all paid diocesan employees will have an email from the diocese. These emails will be the primary channel of communications between Bishop Burns and the Pastoral Center staff and the parish and school employees.

 

What kind of emails can employees expect to receive?

  • Pastoral Center News – Bulletins and announcements from all departments in the diocese (Every Thursday afternoon)
  • Notes from the Bishop – If Bishop Burns needs to send out timely news to all employees of the diocese (As needed)
  • Emergency notifications - Weather closings, policy issues, topical news, etc. (As needed)

 

How will new employees be notified of their new email?

The business manager has the responsibility of distributing the emails to employees. The new email addresses that are created will be emailed directly to the business managers of the hiring parish, school or entity.

 

What happens when an employee transfers within the diocese?

The employee would be in charge of making sure that the email is forwarded to the correct email address.

For example, if the employee originally forwarded the email to his personal gmail account, there would be no need to change the forwarder. However, if the employee forwarded this email to their work email (i.e. newemployee@allsaintsdallas.org), they would be responsible for making sure that the email was forwarded correctly.

 

How do I remove access to a @dallascatholic.org email for a terminated employee?

Terminated employees will be removed from the email system once the employee is listed as Terminated in the PayChoice system. Therefore, it is critical that business managers change the status update of all terminated employees in the PayChoice system as soon as possible after termination.

 

I need to reset a password, is this something I can do on my own?

No, you will need to contact the Pastoral Center to reset your password. It can take up to four (4) hours for the password to be reset.

 

Who do I contact if I am having issues with logging in, or if I need to reset my password?
