—The website of the Catholic Diocese of Wilmington – www.cdow.org – has undergone a makeover. The site, which has been the Internet home for Delaware and Maryland Eastern Shore Catholics since 2000, now has a new look and visitor-friendly navigation.
“Every so often, websites need to be updated to keep up with the changing needs of the public,” said Robert G. Krebs, director of the Office of Communications for the diocese. “Visitors to cdow.org are most often looking for a parish, school, or job. Those links, as well as links to donations, vocations, and The Dialog, are now the first things visitors see when they come to the site.”
The home page also has sliding or rotating graphics that link to timely features, an events section, featured links of importance, and headlines that link to specific articles on The Dialog’s newly enhanced website. The video feature displays the latest video available on the Diocesan YouTube Channel (YouTube.com/DioceseofWilm).
“It has always been our goal to keep the diocesan website up-to-date and looking fresh,” Krebs added. “This new makeover helps us to do that.” The site gets between 30,000 and 40,000 unique visitors each month, according to Krebs.
The Catholic Diocese of Wilmington comprises 56 parishes, 18 missions and 36 schools serving the State of Delaware and the nine counties of Maryland’s Eastern Shore. The diocese is celebrating its 150th anniversary with a yearlong celebration that culminates March 3. Information is available at www.cdow.org/150th.
