    This information should be published in print in OC Catholic. Most of us look to that source for information about our own diocese. This is especially true for the homebound and elderly/handicapped/financially challenged who do not have access to computers much less smart phones. Many are still very interested in the information about those they know and the general local happenings. To be referred to a computer is discouraging and isolating. Please consider rethinking your priorities for print medium.

    Personally, I have a computer and access but find being directed to a computer by a program, news broadcast, newspaper is irritating. If I have taken the time to listen or read about a topic of interest to find that very little information is included with a reference to a computer is wasting my time.

      We were unable to print this list of clergy appointments in Orange County Catholic due to space constraints, which is why it was published on OCCatholicNews.com.

      The print edition of Orange County Catholic and the OCCatholicNews.com website are two separate entities that work hand-in-hand. We appreciate your feedback and will take it under consideration.
