Liturgical Publications and CatholicTV® Join Forces to Help Catholics Learn More About Their Local Parish and Their Catholic Faith
Boston, MA, January 14, 2010 -- Liturgical Publications Inc’s Web site, SeekAndFind.com (http://www.seekandfind.com), has added television programming from the CatholicTV Network for parishes in the Archdiocese of Boston. This addition gives Catholics not only local parish information, but also television programming that inspires, entertains, and educates.
Liturgical Publications (LPi) has added Catholic television programming to its Web site by utilizing the new CatholicTV widget affectionately called “CatholicTVjr.” CatholicTVjr is an ingenious and easy-to-use video player, which can be embedded in any Web site free of charge. CatholicTVjr is unique in that it offers full-length episodes of CatholicTV programming. CatholicTVjr offers over 30 different television programs each with as many as 27 full episodes. All the major national television networks offer widgets, but only CatholicTVjr offers full-length programs. More information can be found at CatholicTVjr.com http://www.catholictvjr.com.
Father Reed, Director of the CatholicTV Network is pleased to have the opportunity to work closely with Liturgical Publications. “Our mission at CatholicTV is to assist people at the diocesan and parish level and to encourage a more active participation in the life and mission of the Church. I have a deep respect for the established and sophisticated ways that LPi supports the local Church. A partnership between LPi and CatholicTV seems quite natural and beneficial for Catholics and those who serve them,” Reed said.
"Liturgical Publications is excited about bringing this technology to churches as part of our parish communications strategy," said Tim Potrikus, Vice President at LPi. "Seek And Find was created to connect the community of parish, parishioner, and business community. Offering high quality international Catholic content in addition to the local church information is ideal for this platform."
SeekAndFind.com (http://www.seekandfind.com) offers church bulletins, basic information about parishes, maps to churches, and a directory of the businesses sponsoring the churches’ publications. It gives churches and their sponsors the opportunity to add more information.
