NEW YORK — Looking to keep current on Province news? Want to read about events and happenings that you may have missed? Look no further than your keyboard.
The Province reminds readers that its Web site (www.HNP.org) is easier-than-ever to use, with a new and improved news section and RSS news feed. The site is more dynamic, too, allowing users to scroll through news promos on the homepage and click arrows to read more. You control what you want to read and how much of the story you want to view.
The home page also includes easy-to-access buttons, and a list of upcoming events.
Under the News from Holy Name section, a list of top stories is easily accessible from the homepage. Jocelyn Thomas, director of communications, reminds users to click on the up and down arrows, which will scroll you through numerous news, not just those showing on your screen. She also reminds friars and Web site users that they can sign up for RSS, a news feed that will automatically send to your incoming mailbox alerts related to Province news. To subscribe, click on the orange icon above the News from Holy Name section.
“Our team is working to create a site that is as interesting as possible,” said Thomas. “We welcome comments from readers about information or site features that they would find appealing.”
The friars-only section continues to offer to Holy Name friars news, event dates, and documents. Click on the link on the bottom right of the homepage to get into this section. Friars are welcome to submit news via e-mail that they would like to be shared with their brothers. The communications office will add the information to the New and Noteworthy section.
As the content of the site continues to expand, more detailed information will soon be available to visitors. Some changes planned for the coming months include:
- Translation into Spanish of the vocation section of the site (identified by the link titled “Join us”)
- Photos of the Province’s ministry sites
- Justice and peace information
The site’s search engine offers an easy way to locate topics.
