Bishop Ray Browne has launched a new website for the diocese on www.dioceseofkerry.ie The old and much loved site has been updated and fully reconstructed to facilitate all those who want easy access to the site on their mobile phones and tablets.
The new website is a major facility of the Diocese of Kerry in communicating and conveying information between all the people of the diocese and beyond. There are 53 parishes in the diocese and thirty five of these are uploading their parish newsletter weekly to the site. This therefore is a busy site, updated daily with diocesan news, church news and parish news. The colours and design of the new site are linked to the new Diocesan Logo ‘Be Christ’s Joy’.
Commenting on the new website, Mary Fagan, Director of Communications for the diocese said: “The diocese has embraced and continues to embrace the opportunity to engage with people through social media. Just take out your phone and have a look at this new website dioceseofkerry.ie. It is all at your fingertips. The diocese of Kerry puts time and effort into keeping this website up to date and user friendly. We have photos and news from all around the diocese as well as meeting the basic information needed on Mass times, Mass Readings and contact details for every parish in the diocese.
“In addition to the website we have a Facebook page which we invite you all to visit and hopefully to like. In the words of Pope Francis ‘The internet, in particular, offers immense possibilities for encounter and solidarity. This is something truly good, a gift from God’.”
The new website is live on www.dioceseofkerry.ie.
