Making the best use of our church website is a great way to evangelize our Catholic faith. It is unfortunate that most of the Catholic websites are designed for the parishioners that already attend the church regularly. Nothing wrong with that but too often we find ourselves preaching to the choir. What about the first-timer? What are they looking for in a church community?
Sometimes the person that is “shopping” for a comfortable place to worship, or a fallen away Catholic, or anyone in search of Christ’s love needs to know about your church before they walk in the door. Think of this as welcoming someone into your home. Do they find your website warm and friendly? Is it easy to navigate?
