Gallup ME25 Survey

Two years ago over 900 parishioners participated in a Gallup survey and shared their thoughts on different facets of parish life and on their own faith journey.    What was learned from the survey has directed the planning and goal setting of our parish commissions for the past two years.    We want to know how we are doing.

To this end, we want to hear from each adult member of your household.  In the coming weeks, we will conduct our second Gallup’s Member Engagement (ME25) survey which will give you the opportunity to share your opinions about some of the key aspects of our parish life. The survey will be administered by Gallup, an independent research company known for its understanding of people and their opinions.  Although most of us know Gallup for its polling work, the organization has been listening to people’s opinions and studying successful organizations for several decades. With this experience, Gallup brings a seasoned ability to help us gather and understand all of the opinions throughout our parish. Gallup designed this survey especially for faith communities such as ours.

Your opinions are completely confidential.  Your individual responses will not be revealed to anyone. After we have received the survey results from Gallup, we will use them to start a dialog about our parish and plan ways to more effectively accomplish our vision of being a “growing Catholic community, united and passionate in deepening and sharing our faith in Jesus Christ through justice, love and compassion.” 

The survey is quick. It takes only 10 minutes, or even less. You can preview the questions on the parish website.  They are also available in Spanish and Vietnamese.  The success of this effort hinges on the completion of the survey by each and every one of us who is at least 18 years of age. We all share equally in our responsibility to reach 100% participation by our parish. Your opinions need to be heard!

This is an exciting time for our parish. We are taking important steps toward fulfilling God’s purpose for us now and in the years to come. Thank you for your participation!
