Parish Community Networks now rolling out to Catholic parishes across the US
Anyone can request a PCN for their parish.
They have arrived! Parish Community Networks, free Catholic websites for churches, have been given the "go" for launch from Catholic Online. The free websites will help change the way parishes engage their communities.

The website is simple and easy to use and can be managed by a single administrator, or permissions can be given to various leaders within the community to manage the various aspects of the site. The website is managed via theHUB, the same powerful enterprise level management technology that Catholic Online uses to manage their staff and content.
Despite the fancy name, the websites are childishly easy to use, requiring only a few clicks to post new content or updates to old for all to see. While the priest can retain full control as the site's super administrator, he can also delegate site management to trusted subordinates, thus saving time and hassle.
Of particular interest for parishes that have already inquired appears to be the benefit of using the PCN as a virtual bulletin for parishioners. As a virtual bulletin, the PCN is available 24/7 and never gets left in the pews. More importantly, Catholic Online is offering parishes a greater share of advertising revenues over traditional print operations.
Distribution of the PCN is being handled via Faith Digital Media, a Catholic Online Technology Partner.
Anyone can start the process for their parish by simply contacting Faith Digital Media. Filling out the contact form will prompt a FDM representative to call you and answer any questions you may have about the PCN and how to get it implemented in your parish. FDM will handle all the work of getting the PCN set up and adopted.
