.- CNA has started off the New Year with a list of new additions and improvements to our news service. In addition to a new look, among the changes are a separate mobile-friendly site, an online Liturgical Calendar, a more comprehensive resource section and a new column that critiques media coverage of relevant topics.
Today CNA released a new site that is mobile-friendly for cell phone users. The webpage contains all of CNA’s news and resources in a format that is conducive for those on the go. The mobile website can be found at: http://m.catholicnewsagency.com.
Also today, CNA’s site received a slight “face lift.” Readers may notice that CNA’s resources, columns and documents that were previously along the left-hand column are now located in a gray box at the bottom of the main page. Additionally, on the inner pages, a list of “Related Articles” which may interest the reader accompanies each story. These suggestions range from news items to related resources and documents.
New information has also been added to the resource section. Readers will find that new prayers, apologetics, Marian devotions, Saints and Biblical information has been added for readers to learn more about the Catholic faith.
Also new to the resource section is an online 2009 Liturgical calendar. The calendar includes the daily readings, the Saint of the day, the liturgical colors used for the particular day’s Mass, and the current week of the Psalter. This exclusive calendar can be found at: http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/calendar.php.
Finally, CNA is thrilled for the opportunity to introduce three new columns this month. The first one, “Under the Glass,” will examine both secular and religious media stories and expose their inaccuracies and biases. Another column will be written by a U.S. seminarian studying in Rome who will discuss his life, experiences and challenges in the seminary. Lastly, CNA will resume its popular “Movie Review” column. Look for these additions to appear in the columns section or at the bottom of the main page during this month.
The team at CNA hopes you enjoy the new improvements and changes. Have a blessed 2009!
