In-Pew Survey Announcement

Thank you to those that have already participated in our feasibility study to determine how to proceed with future capital improvements around the parish. Two weeks ago, we held an in pew survey where each family in attendance at our services was encouraged to complete the form that was provided in the pews. Unfortunately, we have had a very low response to this. We must stress that this is extremely important for the future of our parish and our facilities. We need full participation from our entire community. Your opinions matter to us, as we are basing our future plans on your responses to this survey. Please understand that this survey is in no way a solicitation or request for funding of any kind. It is simply a way to understand what our potential could be if we were to proceed with a concerted fundraising endeavor. All of your responses are strictly confidential and are held by Ruotolo Associates, the consulting firm we have hired to conduct the study.

Next weekend, on March 17 th and 18 th we will be doing another in-pew survey. We encourage you all to please help us by completing the form that will be provided in the pews. We will be setting aside about five minutes during the service to allow you ample time.

Thank you in advance for your participation!
