Our Lady of Glastonbury Abbey in Hingham, Massachusetts was founded in 1954 by Benet Lake Abbey in Wisconsin to carry on the 1500 year living tradition of St. Benedict (480-547 CE), patriarch of western monasticism. We are a community of Benedictine monks committed to seeking God within the tradition of the Roman Catholic Church as specified by the Benedictine way of life.

Our Role:

Since Joomla has considered the best CMS on the planet, we have taken advantages of its out-of-box features and functionality. We used Joomla 2.5 with responsive web designing technologies to create excellent user experiences.

 

 

We have to face designing challenges due to its stacking layout with a cloying but mild background. Infusion of image or photo galleries done through Phoca Galler. We developed event related features with the help of JEvents and given real-time update experiences.

 

Use of tons of images tested our image optimization expertise. Balanced use of white spaces, uncluttered content layout and logical Information Architecture have made this church related website cloying and functional.

 

Integration of donation/payment functionality was challenging enough to make security an important solution. We had carefully integrated various payment gateways including PayPal and Credit card methods made life easy for donors as well as receivers.

 

 

Performance optimization was included since the beginning stages of planning and all the Joomla development processes. Thus, we made high performance Joomla website with responsive web designing techniques.
