The study aimed to develop a Liturgical Planner Application for a Roman Catholic Diocese in the Philippines. By using a mobile application, the members of the Clergy can manage their own liturgical calendar-planner, and a web application for the Chancery office to communicate important liturgical and administrative announcement to others. Descriptive-Quantitative method of research was used as research design, and Rapid Application Development was adopted to develop mobile and web applications. A total of 60 participants were selected using Purposive Sampling, with 56 members of the clergy, 2 Chancery Personnel, and 2 IT experts. The pre-survey instrument consisted of 10 questions, and the system evaluation instrument was based on the ISO 25010. Based on the results, the mobile and web applications are suitable for use by the Clergy and Chancery personnel with excellent ratings on all areas of software product quality in the evaluation. The mobile application provided the Clergy with a planner that integrated the Liturgical Calendar and a means for them to receive communications from the Chancery in real-time. On the other hand, the web application provided the Chancery office a method to disseminate announcements to the Clergy.
