Internet Report Annual Meeting January 2010

Prepared by Mike Bauml

For those of you who are unfamiliar with our site, it is one of the largest Orthodox internet sites on the web. Weekly events, Sunday Bulletin, the Prayer List, Prayer of the Week, and the Online Bible Study are kept current on a weekly basis. The corner icon on the front page is changed to reflect the current holidays and feast days and by clicking on this icon you will be taken to a page explaining the icon and associated feast day. Under Iconography you can find the icon of the day for each of the 365 days of the year. The site has a large amount of information available including Parish Info, the Faith, Reflections, Current Issues, In the News, The Evangelist, and the Kid's Page. These are expanded as articles become available. In the past year we made some changes to improve the site in addition to increasing the amount of information provided. The changed the images on the front page to reflect the changes in the exterior of the building. Portions of the online store were reorganized to be more shopper-friendly. Also the guest book what changed to a better format as well as the calendar page. The new calendar page allows more flexibility for long term planning. One part of the site that has been updated a lot is the Liturgical Text Section. We have gradually been listing complete texts of various services in English. In addition to the Divine Liturgy of both St. John Chrysostom and St. Basil, we also have newly posted complete texts for The Hours, Great Vespers, and Matins. In the coming years we will be working on additional postings as well. Our guest book and the online store reflect the global nature of our site as we have guestbook listings and orders from the online store from all over the world. The online store had been operating as a separate entity from the church book store. We now have combined the two with the internet ministry maintaining the computer site and the bookstore maintaining the inventory and filling orders. Additionally we may now include more items from the bookstore as sale items on the website. Due to the large amount of information we were actually using to servers to propagate the site. This was causing some problems in execution for us. Ron Wojcik was able to find a server for us that was able to accommodate the entire site for a better price and we made this change as well. Also each member of the clergy, parish council, and all of the ministry leaders have a page of their own with their picture, job description, and current issues. The Web Site is one of our strongest and cost effective evangelism tools and in fact many of our new members had their first contact with St. Luke thru the Web Site. I encourage all of you to take the time to view our site. I ask you all to consider yourselves as parish reporters. If you go to an event at St. Luke or elsewhere, take some pictures and send them to me with a description for posting on the site. If you come across an article or something for the humor page or the kid's page, send them to me at collector2630@yahoo.com for possible listing on the site. Council members and ministry leaders should periodically review their pages and send me updates. All information and additions are subject to Father Harrison's approval. The Web Site belongs to all of you and all of us can work together to make it even better that it is now.
