What is REALM?


REALM is an online directory, e-giving, a communications platform, and event registration/ministry scheduling tool all rolled into one. It helps St. Gabriel's~San Gabriel connect with you and you to connect with us. REALM allows you to manage your personal information and who is allowed to see it, control your giving, and keep in touch with the groups that matter to you.


Why should I use REALM?


REALM helps us serve you better in administrating the parish between Sundays. Everyone can be connected from anywhere at any time, right from our mobile devices.  We’ll stay organized, and you’ll stay informed about when you're scheduled to help at church, goings-on with our groups, and opportunities for formation and fellowship.

What about my privacy?


Your privacy is one of our greatest concerns. REALM is only made up of the people in our church, it’s not like a social network that’s open to everyone. REALM keeps your data safe and gives you control over what information you share and who can see it. When you create your profile, you can control what displays in the parish directory with a click of a button next to each piece of information. 

Tell me about e-giving

The new e-giving system integrated into REALM is fast, easy, and intuitive. You can set up recurring gifts, view your giving history, and make changes at any time. REALM automatically records all electronic gifts and adds them to your giving record, which you can view at any time to check progress on your pledge, see if your payment went through, etc. REALM makes it easy for you to give, and easy for our bookkeeper to track!
