.- The Diocese of Springfield held its first live Web forum Tuesday in an effort to answer parishioners’ questions and concerns about the diocese’s upcoming parish reorganization.
Fr. John Bonzagni, director of the Office of Pastoral Planning, responded to more than a dozen questions on the Web log, ranging from the staffing of parishes to parish assets, from 6 p.m. to 8.
A Web log allows real time communication via the Internet. The questions came from parishioners across Western Massachusetts.
People can continue to post questions for on the Web sites: www.iobserve.org and www.diospringfield.org . While the live blog (Web log) will not be active, Fr. Bonzagni will continue to answer questions from the Web site daily for several months.
The diocese will host another live Web log on another topic sometime in the future and will continue to offer information through more traditional means of communication.
