New Vatican Web Site Expected

NEW YORK, MAY 1, 2006 ( The Vatican is planning to launch a new Web site this autumn, aimed at bringing together the faithful so they can interact, says Business Week magazine.

The publication in its May 8 issue reported that the Web site will include personal news updates, e-learning programs, and areas set aside for families, young people and parishes.

It quoted Sister Judith Zoebelein, the editorial director of the Internet office of the Holy See, saying: “People will be able to find each other and work together online, and then go back and use what they have learned or done in their own communities.”
