Member Engagement Index


The Member Engagement Index is a macro-level indicator of a parish's health that allows parish leaders to track engagement levels. This analysis identifies the percentage of members who are engaged, not engaged, and actively disengaged based on their responses to the ME25 survey.


These members are loyal and have a strong psychological connection to their parish. They
are more spiritually committed, more likely to invite friends, family members, and coworkers
to parish events, and give more both financially and in commitment of time.

Not Engaged

These members may attend regularly, but they are not psychologically connected to
their parish. Their connection to the parish is more social than spiritual. They give moderately but not sacrificially, and they may do a minimal amount ofvolunteering in the community. They are less likely to invite others and more likely to leave.

Actively Disengaged

These members usually show up only once or twice a year, if at all. They are on the membership rolls, and can tell you what parish they belong to — but may not be able to name the priest.

However, they may also be regular in their attendance. If that's the case, they are physically present but psychologically absent. They are unhappy with their parish and
insist on sharing that unhappiness with just about everyone.
