The Office of Information Technology (OIT) assists with IT services, consultation, vision and leadership, and works to plan, develop, implement and support technology with functional users and organizations who hope to enable their operational or ministerial initiatives through the use of technology. We work with Pastoral Center agencies, departments, parishes and schools (as resources permit).
OIT operates and supports the Pastoral Center local area and wide area networks linking Pastoral Center agencies, locations and users. OIT provides the systems and applications used by Pastoral Center staff. Additionally, OIT operates and administers the Archdiocese of Chicago E-mail system with users in agencies, parishes and schools. OIT also hosts many of the official web sites of organizations within the Archdiocese of Chicago.
Our responsibilities include reliably operating and supporting the technology and applications infrastructure providing the production capabilities. Functions also include providing IT direction, guidelines, alignment, and support for the overall mission on an Archdiocesan-wide basis, developing and maintaining strategic relationships and partnerships to leverage opportunities, assisting with networking, computer applications and training, hardware/software support, and technology purchases.
