.- The Catholic bishops of Canada have unveiled a new and improved version of their website. It now includes a Bishop’s Blog and article sharing over Facebook.

Bishop Pierre Morissette, president of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) announced the revamped site. It presents all the previous information on the bishops’ site but now has “a sleek, dynamic new look, [a] functional and user-friendly interface.”

At the blog bishops will give a first-person account of how they fulfill their role today, a press release from the CCCB reports.

The site’s tagline is “Teach, Govern, Sanctify,” which are the duties of the bishop.

The CCCB connected the launch of the new site to Pope Benedict XVI’s message for the 44th World Communications Day, in which he invited priests to make “astute use” of the possibilities of modern communication.

“…the increased availability of the new technologies demands greater responsibility on the part of those called to proclaim the Word, but it also requires them to become more focused, efficient and compelling in their efforts,” the Pope’s message continued.

Bishop Morissette invited Catholics and others to participate in the “virtual community” of cyberspace

The CCCB was the first Catholic bishops’ conference to launch a website, doing so over 14 years ago.

Its website is at http://www.cccb.ca
