Thank you to all our readers and supporters for a great month of May. We’ve continued our growth and continued to expand our reach. It has been a joy and a privilege to support the Church and Pope Francis through our website.
This month, we plan to make a major site upgrade and we have finally activated our Twitter account (@where_peter_is). We will be posting all of our new content and other interesting links and information there, so please follow us there if you aren’t already! (Also, remember we have a Facebook page as well.)
We are in discussions to bring some more talented writers on board, each with unique experiences in the Church and on the margins and a clear voice that will assist us in our mission.
Since our debut, we have tried to keep operating costs to a minimum, and we have done our own site maintenance. But server space, domain names, and premium web development tools are not always free. Neither is social media advertising. To date, everything has come out of our pockets.
So for the first time, we are requesting that our readers prayerfully consider making a donation for website upkeep and promotion. All proceeds will go directly towards upgrading the website and promoting it through Facebook and Twitter promotions.
We ask that you support us by either clicking on the PayPal link below or clicking on the “Donate” button on the right-hand column of our website.
If you are unable to donate financially at this time, please consider sharing our site in Facebook or Twitter, or perhaps one of your favorite articles with your friends, increasing our exposure and expanding our audience.
With your prayerful support, we are committed to providing even more interesting, thoughtful, and provocative essays and commentary on the Catholic Church and the Holy Father, in order to advance his mission and vision in the world.
Thank you very much, and have a blessed month of June!
