About our Site

This web site is maintained by the Communication Committee of the Vergers Guild of the Episcopal Church. The site was built and is maintained by volunteers and very little of the Guild's budget is used to operate the site. The vast majority of the tools used are free.

Our design goals with the site are to:
  • Provide the most recent and up to date information about the Verger ministry
  • Enable fast and easy collaborative editing so that pages can be updated easily and quickly
  • Make it easy to use and navigate and easy to find what one is looking for
  • Best communicate what being a Verger is all about
  • Keep the cost as close to $0 per year as possible
  • Make it look pretty
We will continue to work to achieve these goals over time and we'll come up with new goals to implement too! Please contact us if you have any ideas or comments about the site.

How this site was developed

This site uses Google Sites as a content management system so that various members of the guild can update and maintain the site. We highly recommend Google web services and especially Google Sites which has made this site fairly easy to use and at a very very low cost.
