Parish Website Policies
Website Mission Statement.
We, the faith community of Holy Trinity Parish in Bremerton, Washington, rooted in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, recognizing our need to become an evangelizing parish, commit ourselves to the fullest use of Internet-based digital media as an essential component in our call to Catholic evangelization though planned and coordinated use of the Internet in support of that evangelizing mission.
Responding adequately to this call necessarily involves using evolving communications technologies. The world of digital communication, with its almost limitless expressive capacity, makes us appreciate all the more Saint Paul’s exclamation: “Woe to me if I do not preach the Gospel” (1 Cor 9:16). The increased availability of these new technologies demands greater responsibility from all of us called to proclaim the Word, but it also requires us to become more focused, efficient and compelling in our digital communications efforts. We stand at the threshold of a new era: as new technologies create deeper forms of relationship across greater distances, we are called to respond pastorally by leveraging digital information media ever more effectively at the service of the Word.
The mission of our Holy Trinity Parish website is to:
EVANGELIZE the Gospel’s Good News,
CELEBRATE the elements of our Catholic faith with the rest of the world,
CATECHIZE the members of our parish community and the fallen away so they can grow in or return to their faith, and
INFORM current and prospective parishioners about parish events, organizations, and services.
We are called to do all we can to spread the Gospel and help form our parish community. To accomplish this we commit ourselves and our parish website to always seek to use the latest in Internet technology in the service of social communications with the goals of formation, participation and dialogue.
