To those individuals wishing to explore the Internet through CatholicWeb:
The Catholic Directory Mass Times App was featured in the Tech Talk Tuesday blog at CatholicMom.com. The writer, Sarah Reinhard, found the App easy to use, and noted that the Daily Readings and Mass Videos were extremely useful. Thank you Sarah for the recommendation.

We recently completed a brand new website design for our client Holy Family in Jacksonville, FL. Their website was featured in an article "Notable Parish Websites" on Catholic Tech Talk. We are very pleased that the work and design that went into the project was noticed. Here's an excerpt from the article about the Holy Family website, " I love the rotating banner on the home page and the events widget over the the right which is fed from their parish calendar. This parish also has a great process for keeping up on changes that are needed."

"...How do you tell a story of hospitality on the web? How are the subtleties of kindness and caring about each guest's experience portrayed? This is our main marketing and sales tool. How do you get a website to balance our ministry and the business of our ministry? They seemed like very difficult questions to me and our webmaster, but not to you. We were very impressed with your ability to capture the subtleties, and to tell our story with quality minded professionalism and sound website design. Not just with words or pictures but by placement and color, by knowledge and creativity, by style and a willingness to listen. You were able to help us tell our story by first taking the time to understand our story and to learn what we needed to tell. Then you applied your skills and good bit of patience, to lead us through the process of building the new site. The experience was very gratifying and the website turned out wonderfully. You were always accessible and willing to engage in all the details throughout the entire process. It was very reassuring, from our point of view, to undertake this project with professionals who cared about the results and process. You helped guide us and at the same time gave us confidence to be creative and express our story..."

"I wish to thank each of you for your very kind assistance and support over the past seven years I was with CatholicWeb. I was very "green" and knew little about setting up a website, but each time I encountered a problem everyone I spoke with and/or e-mailed for help was very patient with me and always provided me with advice that helped me solve it.
Although I feel I must now move on to test additional opportunities to expand my Mission, I will always look back with fond memories on my experiences with CatholicWeb.
May God bless each of you and your families. And may He continue to bless your Mission that so effectively assists parishes in providing helpful information for parishioners through their parish bulletins. Also, may He continue to bless your efforts to provide individual Catholics with the necessary Internet tools to help bring the Messages of Christ to many other souls, both within, and outside their community."
Vincent Bemowski, Webmaster/Editor from Catholic Messages USA

Thank You So Much:
I am pleased to have this opportunity to express appreciation to the staff and management of CatholicWeb.com for this service to our parish and community. I approached the mission of "keeper" of the website with some distress and doubt since my computer skills are limited, however, with the tutorial assistance of the technical support staff we have accomplished the basic development of web pages that provide visitors and parishioners the information needed to attend services and events offered by Our Lady of Fatima.
CatholicWeb.com is designed user friendly using templates and page design prompts that guide the user step by step. The publication can start basic and as the user grows in skill there are enhancements available that add energy and interest to your design. We are excited about the impact this website will have in building church community and a presence in the local community.
Thank you again for the patience and expertise from the technical support team during the many calls that got us up and running.
Mrs. Glennell Munne' , Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church, 550 U. S. Highway 41 S., Inverness, Florida
