Oblates of the Virgin Mary Site Launches

We’re excited to announce the launch of the Oblates of the Virgin Mary website!

The Oblates of the Virgin Mary is an international community of Catholic priests and brothers in nine countries around the world, and we used WordPress Multisite to create an online hub for the Oblates’ U.S. Province. Through their ministries, the Oblates offer spiritual direction, guided retreats, and provide the sacraments in addition to publishing, preaching and teaching.

We partnered with the Oblates of the Virgin Mary to design and build a responsive website that, starting with their homepage, serves as a gateway to their history, beliefs, ministries and the process of becoming an Oblate.

Using WordPress Multisite, which makes it easy to build a network of related subsites, we created a consistent look and feel for each of the Oblates’ ministries— folding them all into one site for ease of management.

Each ministry is able to collect online donations through their own donation pages, furthering their work in specific communities far and wide.

Some ministries have custom functionality, like the ability for visitors to listen to audio files of homilies or sign up for adoration times at the St. Clement Eucharistic shrine. Visitors to the Venerable Bruno Lanteri subsite can learn more about the life and writings of the Oblates’ founder and are also able to submit prayer requests and testimonials.

We also built a simple bookstore for visitors to purchase books, CDs and DVDs that offer spiritual guidance and insights into the teachings of the Venerable Bruno Lanteri.

Visit the Oblates of the Virgin Mary website to learn more about how they are working toward a rebirth of spirituality in today’s world.
