/ -- FAITH Catholic announces MassTimes for Travel, an iPhone app that helps Catholics find a Mass near them. FAITH Catholic and the Diocese of Lansing operate the Mass Times Trust, which provides masstimes.org
, a website that has had more than 150 million searches worldwide. FAITH Catholic commissioned Servant Systems to develop the app, which provides iPhone users with the ability to find Catholic Masses and other Catholic services based on their current location or the location that they enter.
