We Need Your Input! 
2018 Parish Survey Is Underway Now

As our parish marked its 125th anniversary last year, we are taking time to examine what has led to this solid parish community for so many years, but also help us develop a vision for the future. This is the specific task given to a new committee at GA, the Q Group, which is made up of longtime parishioners, new parishioners, school families, and non-school families.

The Q Group has put together a survey to help in this endeavor. Please take a few minutes to complete this survey. We value our parishioners' opinions and greatly appreciate your time in helping us with this process. The survey should only take you 10-15 minutes to complete. We ask each parishioner/parish family to complete the survey by April 3rd.
If you have additional ideas/concerns not addressed in the survey, please join the Q Group for an open input session on Monday, March 19th at 6:30 in the undercroft.
