Friday, March 4, 2011:
The Applied Technology Department at the Archdiocesan Catholic Center launched a new Archdiocesan web site on Friday, March 4, 2011. The new web site is at: http://www.la-archdiocese.org
and will become the authoritative source for information across the Archdiocese. It has been designed to be easy to find and use information and has a modern look and feel.
Updating Parish and School Directories:
Central to the new web site are the parish and school directories and a new feature that lets visitors find locations on an interactive map. These features make use of the ACES (Archdiocesan Community E-Mail Services) information that was provided by locations that set up their parish and/or school ACES location e-mail accounts.
This information (phone numbers, e-mail address, and web address) can now be edited by logging into the ACES portal at: http://aces.la-archdiocese.org
Log in using your "location account" to be able to update your location's published information. Further instructions are available at the ADLA Intranet Home Page. Click the "ACES Intranet Access" link at the bottom of the page to go there.
As work progresses on the web site, each location's ACES account login will allow the location to maintain additional information that will be useful to site visitors, such as Mass times, office contact information, events, and bulletins.
Existing "archdiocese.la" web site:
will live on in limited form for some time while the Applied Technology Department migrates relevant information from it to the new web site and makes sure that the major search engines (Google, Bing, etc.) follow that migration. Visitors going to the old home page or the old directories will be automatically transferred to the new site.
Ongoing Web site Development:
The various ministries and departments at the ACC will be working with the Department's Web Producer over the next several months to provide fresh information and better access to forms and publications.
The Applied Technology Department hopes that people find the new site helpful and easy to use. For any questions or comments about the web site, please e-mail: WebDev@la-archdiocese.org
The web site is still being developed and people's input is welcome.
