On Jan. 6, the Feast of the Epiphany, Catholic News Agency launched a redesign of its site to provide improved access to its news stories and resources.
CNA’s editor-in-chief David Scott described the new design as “clean and smart.”
“It will make it a lot easier for people with mobile devices to access CNA's work, which has fast become the smartest and most reliable source of Catholic news on the web,” Scott said.
Among the changes in the new design are drop down menus that allow for more direct access to breaking news headlines, features, columns and general resources on the Catholic faith, such as papal documents.
Changes also include improved integration of social networking sites, such as Facebook and Twitter, and a new layout designed for mobile devices like the iPad and other tablets.
Readers will also be able to find a more prominent display of the daily Mass readings and saints under the liturgical calendar icon.
CNA's featured videos with breaking news and exclusive interviews on the Church worldwide will also be easily accessible from the main page.
“The changes are not only visually appealing but user-friendly for a global audience,” added the agency’s web designer Ursula Murua.
“We are excited for the launch of the site redesign and hope that it will further our mission in the service of the universal Church.”
