Karin has been the Webmaster at the church since 2004. When she took on the UU Winnipeg website she rewrote the entire site to make it more accessible, easier to maintain, and more functional. In 2009 the website was again completely rebuilt, this time using Joomla! technology. 2010 saw a major face lift as a new "template" was applied to the site, which was repeated in 2014 and in 2015. Send Karin an email.
