Our Survey Results

After running a survey in January 2022, we received results from across Canada and other countries such as Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Ukraine, and United States. After hearing your feedback, we discovered there was a very strong interest in developing a unique Ukrainian Catholic app and decided to move forward with the project.

Overwhelmingly, there was a strong response to developing an app focused on prayer and presented in the English language. Some respondents did suggest having the app available with Ukrainian and French resources also would assist them.

Some other key takeaways from the survey involved:

  • Creating an app that guides individuals through starting a daily prayer life and helping set reminders.
  • Having a liturgical calendar would be beneficial to users.
  • Ensuring the app is not specifically made to replace Divine Liturgy books, but rather, is made to help guide individuals in developing a life of prayer.
  • Ensuring the content available on an app is not something that regularly is easily accessible on a website.
  • An app that does not require heavy internet usage, as some towns in Alberta have poor internet service.

We have taken all the feedback submitted to us and will be directly using this information in the development of iPraises.

We encourage you to follow the Eparchy of Edmonton’s website and the Bishop’s Mailing list to stay informed of this initiative to help us develop this community-forward resource.
