I hope this finds you well and settled in for the winter, having had a good celebration of our Savior’s birth.
It has been three years since I distributed a questionnaire asking for your input on our parish community. The results were helpful to me and our staff/councils. This is your community and I think it is time again to hear what you have to say. The Evangelization/Formation Commission has written the questionnaire this time with an eye on developing a parish wide goal for August, 2019, through June, 2020. The purpose of the goal will be to help all of our parish ministry groups, and each one of us, become more effective witnesses to Christ’s love.
Please fill out this questionnaire by February 17, at the latest. I urge you to write comments that help us understand your rating, especially if it is low; any concrete suggestions on how to improve would be very helpful. Please feel free to comment on anything.
I thank you in advance for your cooperation and look forward to reviewing your ideas. I will report on the results in a future The Invitation.
