Bobcat E-Envelope

February 23, 2023

St. Patricia Parish will be participating in a parish survey about discipleship conducted by the Catholic Leadership Institute! We need your help!


Please help us by participating in a 10-15 minute survey online.  The survey is available from February 22nd Ash Wednesday - March 31st and will ask you to reflect on your own spiritual growth and enable you to provide feedback on our parish’s efforts to help you grow. All responses will be confidential and the parish will only receive information about the community as a whole. The survey will be available on our website:


We are trying to get the highest response rate possible. This information will be invaluable to Fr. Meany, parish leadership, and our various ministries as we plan for the future and strive to be the best disciples we can be. 

We will receive the results this spring/summer at which time we will share what we have learned with the entire parish. 

Thank you for your help in this important matter!

St. Patricia's Teen Ministry is in the process of forming a Youth Leadership Council to support the planning and leading of the group as we move forward. We aim to create a space to come together and explore the many ways we live our faith as young people... while having fun, making friends, and building confidence to be our authentic Catholic selves each new day. Teen Ministry is open to young people in grades 7-12.
