Knowledge base now Face booked and Twittered! (December 3, 2011)

June 29, 2008: Feast of Sts. Peter and Paul

Updates to the site included:

  • 131 more questions in the knowledge base (current total: 850)
  • NEW: Cool Catholic Videos
  • NEW "look and feel" for all the web posting in the knowledge base with style sheets
  • Remove 4 subtopics, added 4 subtopics
June 10, 2007: Feast of Corpus Christi

The web site was graphically modified to reflect our new domain AskACatholic.com "look and feel" while retaining the CPATS aspect of the site. We purposely put the " * " above the word Catholic, to make it clear that we are NOT an official Catholic web site of the Archdiocese of Boston; despite Cardinal O'Malley's kind words of encouragement.

After consulting several priests on the issue, a new domain for the site was purchase: AskACatholic.com.
