“Policies and Announcements,” Ensign, May 2003, 128
Stake and Ward Web Sites
In a 22 January 2003 letter to priesthood leaders in the United States and Canada, the Presiding Bishopric announced that branches, wards, and stakes in these areas may create Web sites for their units.
In March 2001 wards and stakes were asked to discontinue Web sites, pending a policy established from the Church. With this new announcement, the Church has made available templates and content guidelines for Web sites that can be tailored by each unit. They may post news, announcements, calendars, directories, and meetinghouse schedules on their sites. “This system is the only authorized way for local Church units to have a presence on the Internet,” the letter states.
