ATTENTION PARISHIONERS: We Need Your Help!
The Diocese of Cleveland was given a unique opportunity by way of a grant from the Catholic Leadership Institute to participate in a pilot program that will result in a multitude of benefits for the parishes of our diocese.
The Catholic Leadership Institute provides bishops, priests, religious, deacons, and lay persons in the Roman Catholic Church with world-class, pastoral leadership formation and consulting services that strengthen their confidence and competence in ministry, enabling them to articulate a vision for their local church, to call forth the gifts of those they lead, and to create more vibrant faith communities rooted in Jesus Christ.
How can you help? We are asking all of our parishioners to participate in a survey regarding the strengths and needs of our parish. This survey has several purposes. It will...
- Allow our parishioners to reflect upon their spiritual growth and discipleship;
- Identify the ways in which the parish effectively supports that growth and
look at opportunities to support that growth more in the future;
- Provide valuable input to help pastors and parish leaders make decisions and
- Help pastors and parish leaders have a sense of where to focus their
The deadline for completion is Monday, March 22nd. The survey should take you between 10-15 minutes to complete. Please note that your responses are kept confidential. Your parish and Catholic Leadership Institute will not have access to individual survey responses.
CLICK HERE to complete the survey. Access to the survey may also be found on our parish website. Those who do not have access to a computer can pick up a paper copy of the survey at the parish office.
Thank you again for your participation in this important initiative!
May God bless you!
