California Province Launches New Website

The California Province of the Society of Jesus has launched a new website to deliver an enhanced user experience while bringing visitors closer to the outreach and ministries of the province and Jesuits throughout the world.

The new site follows the model established by the Jesuit Conference of Canada and the United States and adopted by all U.S. provinces.

“Our new site is much more streamlined than our former site,” said Jim Muyo, California Province director of communication. “This new model offers visitors a more direct path to our more than 40 ministries, including educational institutions, parishes, retreat and spirituality centers, and social ministries, and provides a more in depth look at the Jesuit charsim that distinguishes the many ministries of the Society of Jesus.”

The new site contains nearly all of the same information of the former site but with far fewer links and pages to click through. The site will take advantage of best practices and emerging trends in delivering web-based content to provide a richer media experience for visitors. In addition, in collaboration with the Jesuit Conference and the other U.S. provinces, the site will offer a wider range of content and will be much more current than the former site.

Visitors to the site are invited to offer comments and suggestions at http://www.jesuitswest.org/contact-us
