How can we best accomplish what God has in mind for us? How can we best use the gifts and talents of the people who are a part of this parish? These are important questions, and we are constantly talking about them here at St. Mother Guerin Parish.

Starting now through February 23, we are conducting a Member Engagement Survey. Every member aged 18 and older and anyone who considers him or herself a part of our parish has the opportunity to share his or her opinions about some of the key aspects of our parish life together. The purpose of this survey is to help us identify areas of strength in our parish and areas where we can improve.

The survey is administered and tabulated by Gallup, an independent research company. Your opinions will be completely confidential. Gallup will not reveal any individual responses to anyone. After we have received the results from Gallup, we will use them to start a dialogue about how we can more effectively accomplish our mission.

You can take the SURVEY ONLINE BY CLICKING HERE using the access code DECE760 or by printing and filling out THIS PRINTABLE PAPER SURVEY (PDF FORMAT), or you can pick up and fill out a paper copy in the back of the churches. I encourage you to take a few minutes to share your thoughts and opinions with us. Obviously, the higher our participation rate, the more comprehensive our results will be.

If you fill out a paper survey, you can mail or drop it off at the Pastoral Center, Rectory, or in church.

This is an exciting time for our parish as we take important steps toward fulfilling God’s purpose for us. Thank you, in advance, for your willingness to share your thoughts, opinions, and ideas through the Member Engagement Survey.

What is the purpose of this survey?

The Member Engagement Survey will give us a collective view of the spiritual health of our parish. The data will show us where we are doing well and help us see the areas that need our attention to make us a stronger parish.

What does the survey entail? 

The survey features 25 items carefully chosen to measure engagement and spiritual commitment that are essential to spiritual health. The survey will only take approximately five minutes to complete.

Who should complete the survey?

We are asking all parish members aged 18 and older to complete the survey. In addition, any person who considers him or herself part of our parish, regardless of whether he or she is a member, is invited to respond to the survey.

Where do I complete the survey?

You can complete the survey online using the link posted above or on paper in the parish NOW through February 23, 2019.

 What about confidentiality?

Are responses are confidential. We are working with Gallup to conduct this survey. Gallup is a member of the Council of American Survey Research Organizations (CASRO) and, as such, abides by specific rules of conduct that include adherence to strict confidentiality in survey administration and reporting of results. Gallup will not reveal any individual responses to anyone.

How will the survey results be used?

The leadership team will receive the compiled results from Gallup and use them to gain additional insight into how the members feel about our parish. We will use the results to identify specific actions we can take to further meet the spiritual needs of our members.

When do we get to take the survey? 

You are invited to take the survey anytime between these dates: NOW and 2/23/2019. Your opinions matter to us.

Thank you, in advance, for your participation in the survey. If you have additional questions, please contact the parish office.
