Parish Assessment and Synod (2021-2024)Results Page
What is the Synod?
This journey, which follows in the wake of the Church’s “renewal” proposed by the Second Vatican Council, is both a gift and a task: by journeying together and reflecting together on the journey that has been made, the Church will be able to learn through Her experience which processes can help Her to live communion, to achieve participation, to open Herself to mission. Our “journeying together” is, in fact, what most effectively enacts and manifests the nature of the Church as the pilgrim and missionary People of God. ( Vatican Synod Preparatory Document, 2)
What is the Parish Assessment?
This past June, we conducted a parish assessment covering the areas of Worship, Evangelization, Formation/Education, and Service/Social Justice within our church community. This information was gathered in three ways, one in pew assessment for each area over the course of four weeks, a complete assessment mailed to each parishioner, and a complete on-line assessment. With all this information tabulated, the Assessment Team reviewed all the data and determined those areas that are Strengths of our parish, Opportunities for Improvement, and Opportunities to Reach the Marginalized.
