ACS Realm and the Connect App
REALM Note: We have transitioned to Realm, ACS’s cloud-based member records and directory. If you are a member of St. Matthews’s and not currently enrolled in Realm, please contact the parish registrar to receive an invitation email and instructions for accessing Realm. Meanwhile, directory records are still available through the Members Connect app, Church Life.

Privacy laws prevent us from changing your privacy settings without your consent. Follow these instructions to make your contact information available in the church directory:
CHANGING YOUR PRIVACY SETTINGS IN REALM – To appear in the church directory it is necessary for you to sign into REALM and set your privacy settings to Everyone. This can be done on either your home computer (pc) or on your Connect phone app:
On the pc, sign into REALM, go to the upper right hand corner of the screen where it has your name, and click the drop down. Choose My Profile. There are two buttons–Edit Profile and Privacy Settings.
On the phone app, sign in, choose the little 3-bars at the top that pulls out the menu and choose Profile, then Edit (the little pen icon). Under each kind of contact info (email, phone, or address) there’s a little drop down menu that gives you options of who can see that info. You have to change each of these individually to Everyone, or whatever you choose. The easiest thing to do is to choose Everyone as your settings. This mean Everyone in the St. Matt’s database.
Note: You can also change your address and other contact info in REALM yourself using these methods.
Please note: Only confirmed/baptized members of St. Matthew’s have access to these confidential records. Members can be assured that no one else in the congregation can view or edit your personal information.
