  • When adorers receive an invitation to be a substitute, they can respond with yes to claim the substitute request or no to decline it.

  • If your chapel requires an access code, adorers can send a text message of code or access code to receive a message containing their access code.

  • If an adorer sends a text message containing only their email address, it will automatically update their account and send them the welcome email. Learn more.

If the system doesn't understand an incoming text message, it will respond with:

Sorry, we did not understand your message. This is an automated phone number.
