In early 2017 LPI announced the acquisition of the merchant portfolio of Yapstone’s ParishPay online giving solution. In simpler terms, we took possession of all the data for the churches, contacts, giving opportunities, and donors along with all related financial information. We did not acquire their software or technical infrastructure.
The move to WeShare provides many advantages to our new clients:
- Event management with registration and payment features
- A mobile platform for easy donor access and management
- A donor system that integrates to most church management systems
- An Engagement Manage dedicated to individual parishes
- Professional promotional materials to further engage the donor community
- LPI is a single source provider for digital, print, service and branding solutions

LPi was proud to support vibrant parishes in the Diocese of Phoenix by sponsoring this year’s Ascent Parish Leadership Conference on October 5th and 6th. This daylong event occurred in two locations and drew leadership from across the diocese. As parishes juggle programs in key areas: stewardship, discipleship, and evangelization, Ascent asked the question: how can these complement one another? The day featured an opening Mass with Bishop Thomas Olmstead and continued with inspiring keynotes and practical application sessions. Collaborative activities gave space for attendees to take inventory of their parish ministries and make plans for mission.
LPi’s sponsorship will continue throughout the year as the Phoenix Diocese launches it’s Pathfinder Program, an ongoing formation series to connect and equip parish leadership teams for their ministry.
