On April 10, 2013, Jonathan F. Sullivan, the Director of Catechetical Services for the Diocese of Springfield in Illinois, presented a very practical webinar (online presentation) sponsored by the Adult Faith Formation Committee of the National Conference for Catechetical Leadership (NCCL) entitled Using the Parish Website to Power Adult Faith Formation.
The presentation focused on parish websites from the perspective of adult faith formation and had four sections:
- simple design principles that all websites should follow
- practical suggestions for creating materials to be used on the website
- how to prudently select or “curate” resources to appear on your website
- ways to let people know that the resources are posted and available
Jonathan also highlighted several parish websites that demonstrate his points.
The presentation takes a little less than an hour and would be well worth your time if you are a catechetical leader for adult faith formation of if your organization or community wishes to provide resources related to your mission to your members or visitors on your website.
Congratulations and thanks to Jonathan and the NCCL Adult Faith Formation Committee for a fine presentation and for making the recording available to people who were not able to attend live.
