Marian Helper Spring 2023

There’s a new website in town, and it’s about to become your favorite destination on the internet. Introducing DivineMercyPlus.org, the new streaming site for exclusive audio and video content produced by the Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception. “Our evangelical outreach as Marians has always included audio and video,” notes the Very Rev. Chris Alar, MIC, interim provincial, who also serves as “Father Joseph,” director of the Association of Marian Helpers. “During the pandemic, we really ramped up production, and the number of online viewers and listeners has been astonishing. Our livestreamed Masses, Rosaries, Chaplets, and Saturday talks alone have hundreds of thousands of faithful viewers around the world.” With a large output comes a large backlist, much of it hidden over the years within layers of webpages, often inaccessible, even forgotten. Therein lay the challenge. All in one place “We have a huge library and archive of awesome Catholic content, and it made sense to collect everything in one, easy-to-access place,” says Zeke Chichester, chief financial and marketing analyst and part of the large team that spearheaded the project. DivineMercyPlus.org has been in the works for two years.
