FALL RIVER – To foster improved communication, engagement and accessibility across multiple devices, the Diocese of Fall River has launched a new website.

While the address has stayed the same, fallriverdiocese.org, visitors will find something quite different: a fresh look and design, easier navigation and a website that unifies a number of formerly separate sites of different diocesan entities.

The new site uses responsive design technology to ensure a mobile-optimized experience given that more and more time is spent accessing information from the internet on mobile devices.

Almost a year of study, research, and discussion went into the creation of the website by a committee working with the web developer/designer Icon. Diocesan Strategic and Pastoral Planning Director Laura Carrillo oversaw the project.

“Launching the new website for the diocese was a huge undertaking that was sorely needed due to the many disparate sites and lack of modern features and design of the former site,” she said.

“A cross-functional team of staff, clergy, and lay faithful worked tirelessly with developers and designers to bring the vision to life. We hope that users find the site easier to navigate on their computers and phones and are able to embrace all of the ministries and good works that the diocese offers. Ultimately, we hope users can grow in faith through this improved evangelization and communications channel.”

The new website is created to serve as a digital hub for the Diocese of Fall River. With a warm and vibrant color palette, the homepage offers quick links to evangelization resources, parish and school directories, daily readings, and upcoming events. The latest news is also featured along with the most recent post of the Bishop’s Blog. Through a variety of organized menu options, visitors can quickly access information on diocesan offices, ministries, and agencies. In addition, the web redesign delivers a consistent look across its subsites and pages.

Like any effective hub, the overall intent of the site is to connect people to their faith.
