As a former parishioner, I check back on this site every now and then, always hoping for something new. Other than the schedule of weekly worship, it seems as if this rest of this website is static and has not been updated in a long time.

I also wonder if my beloved Fr. Marcel actually checks email that might be sent to his listed address ...

Glory to Jesus Christ!

I am a parishioner at St. Barbara Byzantine Catholic Chapel in Dayton, Ohio. I was tasked this year to develop a new website for our parish, and I would appreciate anyone's input on how to make it better. Please visit the site at http://www.stbarbarabyzantinecatholic.com

Thanks!

I like your pictures! I couldn't find a clear reference to what religion and jurisdiction the cathedral belongs to. I happen to know, but people new to the neighborhood looking it up might not.

Thank you for your kind comments CDB1718! If you go to the "History" section (third tab in) it explains the entire history of the Cathedral (Byzantine Catholic), if you wish to see some old historical photographs of the Cathedral, feel free to visit www.tccweb.org click on the "Gallery" button at the left, then click the drop down bar for Saint Michaels, we also have an extensive history at http://www.tccweb.org/ourchurches.htm just scroll down to Saint Michaels Section.

Thank you again! I will pass your comment along!

John,

My first impression is very positive. I want to look at it more in depth and comment at more length, which I'll try to do this weekend. One quick note, though, ... in the history, there is a line of text that reads "Bishop John Kudrick, parch of Parma", which you might want to fix. (Not nit-picking, it just jumped out at me as I was visually scanning the page).

Joy,

I've probably visited the website periodically, as Joe has, but I peruse a few hundred such each year, chiefly in conjunction with developing the online parish directory, but also to herald those that are particularly good (the reason this thread was begun).

End result is that I can rarely remember what one looked like the last time by the time I see it again and that's the case with St Michael's. So, in that respect, my observations won't mirror Joe's, because they'll be more akin to a first-timer's reaction than that of the recurring visitor. The perspectives are different, but both have their place and their value.

As with what I posted above to John, I want to offer some comments (and I actually spent quite a while reading the Cathedral site last night), but am going to defer to the weekend, when I can do so with a bit more leisure.

Many years,

Neil

Neil:

That was why I was asking, to obtain feedback, positive or not and then pass it along, I can appreciate what you mean as I also must review Lord knows how many sites per year of all different topics, subjects, formats, etc. I know how very busy you are so please dont take the time, it was just a question in general for basic overall comments but I appreciate your kind attention.

Lawrence, my friend, as Etnick said, a beautiful iconostasis. When I start putting up directory entries for the Eparchy of St Nicholas, I'll be hoping that you can get me a couple of photos to illustrate it.

Many years,

Neil
