Following months of planning and preparation, the Catholic Diocese of Grand Rapids launched a new website on Jan. 28. Visitors to the previous website at are being automatically redirected to the new site,

“We are excited to debut our new website to the West Michigan Catholic community,” said Annalise Laumeyer, diocesan communications director. This website redesign is one way we are working to better serve our parishes, schools, priests, principals, parishioners, and other visitors throughout our 11-county diocese and beyond.”

With more time than ever spent browsing the internet on mobile devices, being able to provide users with a mobile-optimized experience was a top priority of the redesign. Additional features of the new site include a streamlined, visually-appealing design which is easier to navigate, and more concise.

We welcome you to explore the new site. The website’s home page and news area will be updated regularly with the latest communications from Bishop Walkowiak, updates, events and other information.

The new website, designed by the excellent folks at Revel, is created in WordPress.
