LiturgyHelp has indeed transformed, in both look and navigation. The New LiturgyHelp is rich in additional resources and updated content whilst retaining some much-relied-upon features. Patrick Nisbet of Creative Ministry Resources was generous in outlining the many, helpful shortcuts and tips to navigate the new structure and I left the training session feeling excited to explore in detail.
Those who were unable to get to the workshops are not abandoned. LiturgyHelp’s ‘Help’ menu, identifiable by a question-mark icon, provides a suite of user-friendly assistance options via Tours, Videos, FAQs and News media. There is also a ‘Chat’ portal which is manned by the Creative Ministry Resources team. No generic, robotic interaction here – you’ll be answered by a real expert!
The new version has been active since March 2019 and I recommend that all existing Maitland-Newcastle users migrate to the updated format as soon as possible. Whilst the Old LiturgyHelp is still accessible, for now, it will be switched off in a matter of days. So, take the plunge and explore. Help is one click away.
NB: New users can contact their parish for an individual, generic login from the 5 full and 50 partial logins which were supplied to all parishes in 2014.
