Internet Report Annual Meeting January 2011
Prepared by Mike Bauml
Our Web Site continues to be for many their first exposure to life as a member of St. Luke Parish. It is one of the largest Orthodox Sites on the internet and continues to grow under Father Harrison’s direction. We maintain weekly aspects such as events, the Sunday Bulletin, and the prayer list. The calendar posts church events monthly. The corner icon on the front page is changed to reflect the current holiday or feast day, and under iconography you can find the icon of the day for each of the 365 days of the year.
We have an online store available for you to purchase items, and we have sent items to others around the world. There is a tremendous amount of information about our church and our faith on the site and I encourage you all to take advantage of it. During the past year we continued to add to our Liturgical text section and added additional programs of the “Hour Of Orthodox Series.” For those of you who are considering joining Father Andrew on the upcoming pilgrimage to the Holyland, take the time to look at some of the slideshows of past pilgrimages.
Currently we are discussing the possibility of steaming video of the Liturgy throughout the building and even on the internet for those unable to attend in person. These are exciting times and we should do our best to use these new technologies to further God’s message. This is your site and if there is anything you feel we should be doing to improve it, please feel free to let us know.
