Charity builds low-cost websites for parishes

 XT3 Media, a Catholic multi media charity, dedicated to supporting the work of the Church, has launched its "Connecting Parishes" project. The charity is offering a highly professional website to parishes throughout the United Kingdom. The user friendly password protected Content Management System, means that a parish website is easy to update and manage. All the technical aspects including web hosting are provided by XT3 Media. Although the functionality of the sites is the same, the 'look and feel' of each site is unique to each parish. Endorsing the project, Fr Keith Herrera from St Columba's Aberdeen, said: "As a parish priest I have found Xt3's website a wonderful tool for the parish. I have found it amazingly easy to add new material and content according to our needs. The feedback from the parishioners has been immensely positive and encouraging. The support from the Xt3 team has been superb and I'm only sorry I didn't find out about them earlier. To anyone thinking about inviting them to build your parish website, I would give you my wholehearted encouragement." Three parishes in the Diocese of Lancaster have taken up sites: St Begh's Whitehaven (, St Catherine's Penrith ( and St Cuthbert's Wigton ( The project is being run on a donation basis.
