Re-establishment of the service

29/08/2006: General House

For about two weeks, the usual readers of our website have not had access to the Institute’s webpage. Having re-established this service, we owe you some explanations.

The domain old.champagnat.org was acquired in July 2000 and was registered by a company specialised in this type of service. The payment of rights of acquisition had been made by a Province of the Institute and the address given was that of the Provincial house of this Province. The restructuring of the Institute led to this Provincial house being moved to another city. The data that the Province had provided to the company to register our domain was no longer up-to-date and when the contract finished, the company employees could not contact us and the service was cancelled after a period of grace.

When the Communications Department detected a problem, it thought it was a technical difficulty and tried to solve the problem by calling in technicians. We finally dismissed the hypothesis that it was a technical problem and discovered that it was in fact an administration problem.

During the month of August in Europe, administrations work in slow motion and the same happens in our works; services are reduced to a minimum during the holidays and that is the reason for the long delay in re-establishing our connection as this depended on people outside of our house.

Now that the service of the Institute has been re-established, we will publish in the coming days the news of the last few weeks from the entire Marist world, even though they have lost some of their freshness and topicality, such that they now are part of our archives.

We thank you for your understanding of these difficulties and for the interest that many of you have shown through e-mails or phone calls to inform us of the difficulty experienced in accessing the site. We hope that our website will continue to receive your regular visits and the contributions of many brothers and laypeople.
