. . . to a website near you!
In what has been a summer of transformation, another transformation has been happening behind the scenes, and we are almost ready to unveil it. Within the next few weeks, we expect to launch our new and improved website.
Just as with our Bookstore and our woods, change is necessary to grow and thrive. As we move beyond the challenges of Covid, our goal is to grow the ministry of St. Anthony’s so it is stronger and more viable as we move forward. The purpose of the strategic planning our Board went through earlier this year was focused on how to make that happen, and a high priority identified in that process was the redesign of our website.
We wanted a fresh, new look as well as making the site easier to use for both our visitors and our staff. Features you have come to love will still be on our website: weekly Reflections and House Chronicles, Retreats and Events webpage, our rich history, Team member information and photos, and our Spiritual Direction page will all still be there. We will also be augmenting our Ministry Associates page, updating our photos of the grounds and building to reflect many of the other transformations that have been going on the past few months and years, and adding a couple of new features.
While some of the improvements are still in the works, and many updates will be an ongoing process, we are sure you will notice significant changes once we launch the new site. We are very excited to share it with you and look forward to your feedback.
Also like the Bookstore and our woods, significant transformations take teamwork. Many people had to work together to make this transformation happen, from the vision of the Board to set the process in motion, to the web designer to implement the vision, to the staff and volunteers who will be responsible for keeping the site fresh and up-to-date. Every member of the team had to buy into the process and be able to work with the other members in a spirit of cooperation and focus on the goal.
For the vision and courage to change, and for the spirit of cooperation to bring about transformations, we say Deo Gratias!
