A Busy Year

Thank you to the many of you who have informed us how much you appreciate the work we do in keeping you informed, especially during the pandemic. This is one of the responsibilities of the Diocesan Communications Office. 

In March, as we all were getting the news of the seriousness of the virus, Coronavirus and Spiritual Communion webpages were quickly created. Almost simultaneously, technology was cobbled together as we began streaming Masses from the Cathedral of Saint Patrick to the diocesan webpage as well as Facebook. . Another webpage was established shortly after that to host the links to the many parishes that also Livestream Masses

Lent & Holy Week  

In conjunction with the Office of Faith Events a Lenten Resource page was created. In addition to Livetreaming all of the Holy Week Masses that Bishop Cote presided over, we also helped develop an online version of the Stations of the Cross.
