Web Site Makeover

If you have been a regular visitor to our web site, you will have noticed some significant changes.

The St. Mark’s Communications committee has been working hard over the last several months to determine how to transition our web presence in much the same way as we work through the transition of finding a new rector. With the guidance of the very talented people on our committee, we have made some changes to the web site that we are very excited about.

First, we have changed the look of the web site with a brand new theme. We believe it is simpler while having greater impact.

We have also removed some very old and out of date content and modernized the menu bar in order to simplify navigation of the St. Mark’s web site. We hope this will make it easier for members and visitors alike to find the information you are seeking.

Another major change is that the first page you will see when you visit the St. Mark’s web site is the News page. This means that news about important happenings at St. Mark’s will be the first thing you see. We believe that this projects a more dynamic image of St. Mark’s for visitors to our web site who are looking for a new church home, or just a welcoming place for them to worship while they visit the Raleigh area.

We still have work to do as we fine tune the web site. So expect more changes.

If you have questions or comments about our modernized web site, contact our system administrator, David Both.


New Look for St. Mark’s Web Site

March is a month of renewal. This month flowers are already blooming; we will “spring forward” into Daylight Savings Time; we will celebrate Easter and the Resurrection; and Spring will arrive. Very soon we will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the founding of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Raleigh, North Carolina.

In another act of renewal, your computer and network administrative team at St. Marks has been working with an ad hoc committee of interested folks in the Parish to redesign our web site. Our primary objectives, in no particular order, are:

  • Create a clean look that will be harmonious with the Diocese and other Episcopal churches in the area while emphasizing the unique aspects of St. Marks and our people.
  • Highlight our many mission activities.
  • Be easy to read for visually impaired visitors to the web site.
  • Attract visitors and encourage them to become members.
  • Add a slide show.
  • Provide easy consistent navigation between pages.

This web site is a result of that work.

Contact me if you have any questions, suggestions, or comments about this web site.
