Welcome to Our New Home


Just one month ago, The Integrated Catholic Life eMagazine was launched as a simple blog… just another of the many hundreds, if not thousands, of journals in the Catholic Blogosphere.  The response was incredible and we were challenged to enhance the format of the site, converting it from a blog to an e-zine. The number of visits (click on the vistor maps on the right sidebar of the Home page to see the world-wide audience) and the time and bandwidth spent in hopefully enjoying and benefiting from the content has led us to have to find a home of our own with more system and database resources.

So this is it… http://www.integratedcatholiclife.org …the look of the e-magazine has not changed, but what’s under the hood has.  We will now be able to serve up even more multimedia and interactive content.  For all the editors and writers, I thank you readers for making this all worthwhile. Please spread the word and invite your family, friends and neighbors to visit. And don’t forget to add this site to your favorites so you can find your way back again.

If you have already registered, you do not need to do so again. We have saved your user data. If you have not registered, please take a moment to do so by clicking Register on the right sidebar of the Home page.  Registration allows you to post comments on the articles.

May God Bless our efforts at evangelization using the new media and may He richly bless each of you and your families!
