Point your mouse our way
In this age when newborns and even pets have their own Web sites, maybe the news that the Diocese of Peoria and The Catholic Post have redesigned their homes on the Internet doesn’t pack the same punch as it might have a decade or more ago when anything “www” made us wondrous, wowed, and wide-eyed. But if our story last week didn’t lead you to point your computer mouse to “cdop.org” or “thecatholicpost.com,” we’d like to re-issue the invitation.
In what sometimes can be a Web of temptation and lies, you will find at these cyber addresses — and others just a click away — oases of truth and information for Catholic living in central Illinois.
Want to hear a homily from Bishop Jenky? You will be able to listen to many of them via podcast at cdop.org. All of his pastoral and festival letters are there too. Thinking about the priesthood or religious life? Don’t miss the redesigned site of the Office of Vocations. Want to know the date of a coming diocesan event? Now you can even download a flyer explaining it.
The newly redesigned Web site of The Catholic Post features a sampling of our weekly newspaper, as well as daily updates of local, national and world stories. We especially invite readers to use our page to take part in our regular “Post Poll,” which invites your thoughts on topics of Catholic interest. The first poll asks if there is a book you’d like to recommend that has influenced or inspired your faith life.
In this Year of St. Paul, we think the evangelist would be happy with our latest venture to spread the good news of salvation through the modern media. We may not be on the edge of technology and all that it can offer in service to Christ, but we’re closer to it.
And for the record, we’re happy that you’re reading this on newsprint, which we love and believe will long remain an effective way to unite the diocese and reach into the homes of Catholics throughout central Illinois. We thank God for allowing us the honor of bringing you the best in both worlds. — Thomas J. Dermody, editor-in-chief, The Catholic Post
