The Archdiocese of Saint Louis today upgraded its entire website to a new design and a new platform, allowing offices and agencies to more quickly and more easily communicate with the faithful in the Archdiocese (and around the world!).
I've been working on this project (with a lot of help from Palantir, a web development company in Chicago) and some local developers for the past year, and I am pleased with the result (I hope you are, too!). I've written up more information about the technical aspects of the site on Open Source Catholic (read more about the Archdiocese of Saint Louis' Upgraded Website), and I will continue writing some posts about specific details on the Open Source Catholic website.
Some of the highlights of the redesign:
- The new Archdiocesan-wide Calendar of Events
- The revamped Prayer Request system
- The accessible and standards-compliant design (tested in all major browsers)
- A new Parish, School, and Organization directory.
- Every organization now has a more unified interface, and the adminstrative backend is greatly improved
