August 23-24, 2014

Last week's bulletin contained an appeal for religious ed teachers. I am sure that the Lord has blessed our parish with people who have the gifts to assist us in this ministry. Please pray at least that the right people with these gifts will be inspired to step forward and become involved with our religious education program.

Last fall 238 (of 1,534) parish members took part in the Archdiocesan-wide survey. Just recently all the parishes received the report and statistics broken down by parish. The questions covered a wide range of concerns. Included with the survey report are membership statistics too. These make interesting reading! The pastoral council will be studying these numbers since such information will certainly affect our parish planning. On August 22, you will be able to access this same information on the AOD website.
