Exaltation of the Holy Cross Parish - 2019 Survey
Dear parishioners and friends,

Happy New Year! We hope you had a wonderful and joyous Christmas Season.

For the past year, our Parish Pastoral Council, under the leadership of Father Richard Cirba and diocesan facilitator Ann Marie Cawley, has been studying our parish life and how it relates to Bishop Joseph C. Bambera’s Pastoral Vision for the Diocese of Scranton. “Wounded and Loved, Regathering the Scattered: A Pastoral Vision for the Church of Scranton” was published in June of 2011. It outlines his pastoral vision for each parish of the diocese under the pillars of Word, Worship, Community and Service.

We are blessed with an active and dynamic parish at Exaltation of the Holy Cross where individuals of all ages are involved in the life of our faith community.

Your honest and thought-filled responses to this survey will enable our Pastoral Council to create a three to five year plan, which will be presented to the parish community in May of this year.

If you have any questions and/or concerns, please feel free to contact any Parish Pastoral Council member.

Thank you for your time and consideration,
Lynn Blazaskie, Dominick Costantino Jr., Joan Cunard, Barry Kaminski, Barbara Pencak, Gloria Phillips, Susan Pointek, Jerry Tippins, Ann Williams
