NEW BERLIN, WI — April 30, 2010 — “Go forth and blog.” That might not be an exact quote, but it is how Pope Benedict XVI’s message for the 44th World Communications Day has been widely interpreted. More specifically, the message encouraged priests to use today’s new technology to evangelize the Gospel. See www.pope2you.net for more details.
Coinciding with this message is the introduction of the latest feature available on SeekAndFind.com. Introduced in 2009, SeekAndFind.com is an online directory of churches and organizations, as well as the sponsors who support the communication tools they use. It offers both the churches and their sponsors a robust Internet presence that is easily edited by even those without webmaster experience.
The latest feature available on SeekAndFind.com is the easy-to-use blog capability. With a few easy clicks, the “Letter from the Pastor” that usually only appears in the weekly bulletin can also be posted to the Internet, allowing the message to reach even more members—and allow the reader to comment or ask questions, right on the blog, that the author can respond to, making the delivery of his message even clearer. Of course, newly penned messages, or those written by other church ministers, can also be added to the blog. The messages are hosted and archived by SeekAndFind.com, making setup and maintenance by the parish unnecessary.
In addition to the blog, churches listed on SeekAndFind.com also have a photo gallery, video library, and events calendar—just to name a few. Churches who partner with Liturgical Publications Inc for the printing of their bulletins, newsletters, and flyers already have a listing on SeekAndFind.com, where their publications are posted as soon as they print, making it easy for members to reference past copies, or download a copy on Sundays when they attended services elsewhere.
The advertisers who sponsor these publications also receive a listing page on SeekAndFind.com, making the value they receive from supporting the parish even greater, increasing their support of the parish community. It gives these local businesses an additional, and stronger, connection to the community they already support with their advertising dollars, making them more likely to continue with this support.
SeekAndFind.com is an online directory of churches and organizations around the country, as well as the sponsors who support them. It is an offering of Liturgical Publications Inc (LPi). Since its founding in 1972, LPi has offered organizations across the United States custom communication solutions backed by industry-leading service.
