I’ve developed new websites for several catholic churchs in the Detroit area. As a result of those projects, I was contacted by the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament to design a new website for their cathedral.
The cathedral is the home of the Archdiocese of Detroit, and is the mother church of the diocese. Archbishop Allen H. Vigneron presides over the diocese and the cathedral is his church.
Working with the cathedral staff was wonderful. My point of contact at the cathedral is well versed in the process of developing new websites, and is a very strong user of the WordPress content management system, which is the backend of all websites that I develop.
The cathedral wanted an updated website, with a polished and professional look, but uncluttered as well. Their first goal was to provide useful information to their site visitors in a clean format that allowed visitors to easily find the information they were interested in.
The website itself is made up of dozens of pages and hundreds of past articles. As such, it was necessary to use a combination of horizontal drop down menus (two submenus deep) in order to make the wealth of information available to site visitors. In addition to this, several secondary menus were needed to provide access to all the site information, from social media links to privacy and sitemap pages.
As usual, I used the Genesis theme with a heavily modified child theme as the backend of this WordPress website. The site is coded to be mobile friendly, and to adjust seamlessly depending on the viewport size of the site visitor.
It was a plesaure working with the cathedral and they are very pleased with the new website, as am I.
