Hooked On Code was pleased to be approached by St Francis of Assisi
, a Catholic Church in Grapevine, TX. St Francis felt that their website was no longer an accurate representation of their church family as it lacked the excitement and modern elements they had been working toward. The new website would need to appeal to both newcomers as well as existing parishioners. There would also need to be separation in how the announcements and events were displayed. They had been combined in a blog which effected their visibility. There is now an events calendar that allows events to be repeated, featured, and easily found.
We kept the structure familiar enough that visitors already familiar with the site wouldn’t get lost and used logical organization so that one could easily find what they were looking for. The church also had a professional photographer come take photos and videos which really enhanced the appearance of the site
The full width video that auto plays on arrival is really spectacular and gives a great impression of the church’s atmosphere and energy. There are fun and engaging animation with lots of visuals as well as a ton of content. We are happy to say the website has been extremely well received and was a huge hit with both new and existing parishioners.
