Pusan Diocese in Korea has developed a smartphone-friendly internet platform so parishes can easily establish a stylish internet presence for their blog or homepage.

The Parish Homepage of Pusan Diocese was created by its Social Communication and Computer Department and took a year to develop. Currently, 24 parishes and seven diocesan institutions have established homepages on the platform.

The platform has been designed so that anyone with a basic knowledge of web pages, blogging and email can easily manage the parish homepages. Any gaps in an administrator's knowledge will be plugged by the Pusan Social Communication and Computer Department who offer training in how to use the new platform.  

"This year, the pastoral motto of our diocese has been the 'Year of Evangelization.' I hope the new internet platform will be a tool to help the faithful lead their Christian lives in the parishes," said Father Francis Lee Sung-joo, social communications and computer director of Pusan Diocese.
