In order to more fully expand its evangelization outreach in the digital realm, the Diocese of Trenton rolled out a newly redesigned
earlier this week.
The new site is meant to engage visitors, encourage them to discover the ministries and outreach of the Diocese and have access to information that will meet their needs.
The decision to develop a more inviting and accessible website was one of several initiatives emerging from the work of a committee on Digital Media and the New Evangelization, which Bishop David M. O’Connell, C.M., commissioned in 2015.
Committee recommendations were also informed by feedback from key staff in the Chancery, including department and ministry leaders. The Diocese then partnered with Catholic web-hosting and design firm
to develop the new site.
New resources developed for the website include an easy translation function, and an interactive map of local parishes and Catholic schools. In the weeks to come, the Communications Office is developing a mechanism for visitors to submit questions that they don’t find the answers to, including an Ask the Bishop feature that engages Bishop O’Connell in personally answering incoming questions.
The goal of the new site is to build relationships with visitors by connecting them with what they seek, as well as by inviting them to get involved in the Church, as supporters, volunteers and participants in the many events and activities planned each year.
