.- Trimilenio, a service operated by VE Multimedios that offers free web sites for the Church, celebrated its first anniversary on August 15, 2006, Solemnity of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary.
According to the organization, “during the last twelve months, four thousand church institutions have requested space to create their own websites, and currently more than two thousand six hundred have been created and are constantly updated.”
Each week, Trimilenio receives more than fifty new users, including bishops, priests, religious, consecrated and laypeople who work actively in parishes, ecclesial movements and Catholic associations.
“Latin American missionaries who work in Asia and Africa also use Trimilenio in Spanish to create websites about their communities and to seek international help for the work they carry out,” the organization reported.
The work of Trimilenio includes not only free web hosting, but also training and formation for users through virtual workshops.
During the next year, Trimilenio will offer its users additional web tools, including personalized backgrounds, flash animations and online music and video.
