MONTRÉAL, Oct. 29, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - The Catholic Church of Montreal, the first Diocese in Canada to enter this sphere, is launching a mobile application to reach people where they are.
Available for iOS and Android, the application provides the geolocation of our diocesan churches, Mass and/or Adoration schedules, a prayer chain, as well as news, activities, and thematic videos. It fulfills a dream that Montreal's Archbishop Christian Lépine has had for a long time: for people to not have to plan their next church visit but rather to be able to decide to go during the course of the day, without having to search tediously or travel far.
The diocesan Communications team turned to WE_ARE for the creation of the application. WE_ARE is a web and mobile application development studio that came into existence in 2009.
The Diocese of Montreal was founded in 1836. It consists of 1,700,000 Catholics spread throughout 194 parishes and missions on the Montreal, Laval, Repentigny, and L'Assomption territories.
