Parish Survey Results are in!
The parishes of Cluster 22 conducted a survey on Mass attendance, Faith Formation, and communication from December 14, 2013 through February 2, 2014. The results were analyzed by Critical Insights. Mary Ellen Fitzgerald, president of Critical Insights and St. Bartholomew parishioner, presented the survey results to the Cluster Pastoral Council on Monday, February 24, 2014. These same results can be read by clicking on the link in the sub-menu on the left. The Cluster Pastoral Council agreed that an executive summary of the results should be drafted and presented to the parishes at large on the weekend of April 5/6, which can also be read by clicking on the link in the sub-menu on the left.
The Cluster Pastoral Council will continue to discuss the findings of this survey. Certainly, one of the major themes coming out of the survey is to help parishioners know each other and bond into a community. The members of the Cluster Pastoral Council feel that this is a task for everyone in the parish community and not just the parish staff. To make some strides in this area, we have also made available on the sub-menu to the left "12 Tips for Becoming a More Welcoming Parish." Please share this with other members of your parish. Thanks for participating in the survey and we hope you will continue to provide feedback when you can.
