Employee Portal Instructions

As an employee of the Diocese, you can now access your payroll information online effective immediately!  Paper pay statements will no longer be mailed out after the January 2020 pay period. This helps fulfill our commitment to be good stewards of God's resources by reducing the use of paper and postage fees!
The new DONW Employee Portal through PGi will allow you to:
  • View and download your Pay Statement
  • View and download T4 starting year 2020
  • View Direct Deposit Information
  • View/Edit your Profile
  • View Year-to-Date Totals
  • View your Saved Reports
We hope that our new online payroll system will not only make it easier and safer for you to receive your monthly payroll statement, but it will make it more efficient for you to retrieve or update your Payroll Information.

*Please note any changes on your PGi profile does not represent changes to Diocesan Records*

Step 3: When you click on "My Pay Statements" in the menu to left of the page. You will be taken to a new page, which will show this year and previous years. Please note only 2020 is currently available from January 2020.
