1 St. Christine Church Results from the Mass Survey in January 2007

2 Parish Alive! Process Summary 1. Assemble Core Group to lead an assessment of things, inside and out 2. Identify top items for Parish to address 3. Make plans to address these items (work with what exists and propose new ideas) 4. Announce these plans in a Convocation (open forum) and tweak/revise if need be 5. Implement the plans to address top items

3 Purposes of the Surveys  Voice: allow folks to express themselves  Check: tap into our strengths and challenges (pulse/BP)  Suggest: provide insight as to where we might focus our efforts

4 Survey Reinforcement  Leadership surveys done in October 2006 echo the findings of the Mass surveys (strengths in Liturgy and Parish leadership, challenges in involvement and youth appeal)  Focus Groups done in January 2007 also reflect the findings of the Mass surveys (strengths on the Mass and what the Parish has to offer; challenges in reaching out to those not involved and being appealing to young folks)
