Metropolitan Archdiocese of Kuala Lumpur

Archkl.org is official website for The Roman Catholic Metropolitan Archdiocese of Kuala Lumpur (ArchKL) which is an ecclesiastical territory of the Roman Catholic Church in Malaysia.

The archdiocese was erected as the Diocese of Kuala Lumpur by Pope Pius XII on February 25, 1955, and was elevated to the rank of a Metropolitan Archdiocese on December 18, 1972, with the suffragan sees of Melaka-Johor and Penang. It also administers the capital of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur and the states of Selangor, Negeri Sembilan, Pahang, Terengganu. The archdiocese's Mother Church and thus, seat of its Archbishop, is Catedral of St. John.

Challenges

The website is highly sought after site mainly by all the catholics residing within the archdiocese. And key information pertaining to the Archbishop, his initiatives and what is being offered by the Archdiocese is also missing from the old website, that went down late 2011. The challenge was to display all the key relevant information such as parishes, retreat locations, and key events within the archdiocese and make it available to all Catholics.

Approach

Our approach is to keep the maintenance of the site together with the regular updates low. As such, the main homepage of the website, will be modernised based on clicks and no info presented except for the regular rotating banner. Linux server is powering the entire website.

Solutions

We used standard open source Content Management System (CMS) to power the website. Rigid directory system were build to display key important facts - Parishes, Educational Institutions, and Retreat Locations. While the calendars were utilised through Google platform. For first time, the Clergy directory is built together with local intranat, that assist all the priest within the archdiocese to communicate effectively with each other, allowing them to transfer documents and messages across this web based intranat platform.

Results

Basic statistic shows unique visitors grew from 54 in July 2013 to 155,800 unique visitors as at July 2018. Highest number of sought after info, starts from Parish locations to the Clergy who is serving within the archdiocese, general information such as what's shapping up wihtin the diocese, Living Faith which consist homilies from vatican to local priest, and Archdiocese key programmes.
