Register a non-Google Account to Use at GarrettStPeter.com


If you are a third party (such as an Archdiocesan representative or a contracted auditor) who requires access to St. Peter the Apostle's online resources, you may need to register your email account with Google in order to access our information.

St. Peter the Apostle (SPA) uses Google Apps - a Google-hosted application platform. As such, Google provides authentication and access control to our cloud-based resources. In order to access SPA online resources, you will need to have an email account that Google recognizes. That can be accomplished in one of two ways:

    1. Your existing organizational email account is already hosted by Google (like SPA), or
    2. You can "register" your non-Google email account with Google.

If your organization's domain is hosted by Google (like SPA's is), then there is no further action to take. Simply provide your organizational email address to your SPA contact, and they can use that to share resources with you.

If your organization's domain is not hosted by Google, you will need to "register" your non-Google email account with Google. To register your non-Google email account for use with Google-based resources, please go to this page:

https://accounts.google.com/SignUp

...and complete the Google account registration process. It will take less than 5 minutes.


PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING IMPORTANT POINTS WHEN REGISTERING YOUR NON-GOOGLE ACCOUNT:

  • In the field labeled "Choose your username", BE SURE TO CLICK "I prefer to use my current email address". (See the purple arrow in the screen shot to the right.) That will let you enter your non-Google organizational email address.
  • If you wish, you may choose to provide the same password in the Google form as you already use for your organizational email account, but it may be different if you prefer. Either way, SPA WILL NOT HAVE ACCESS TO ANY OF THIS GOOGLE ACCOUNT REGISTRATION INFORMATION.
  • In addition to name, email address, and password, you must enter some value for "birthday" and "gender". You do not need to provide a mobile phone number or a location.
  • When you've finished the registration form, agreed to Google's "Privacy and Terms", and submitted your information, you will get a confirmation email message at your organizational email address with more instructions on how to confirm that your account is indeed registered with Google.
  • When you have followed the instructions in the confirmation email from Google, you're all set. You may notify your SPA contact that your organizational email address is now registered with Google, and they may use that to share SPA online resources with you.
