Our Partnership with Communio
We’ve partnered with an organization called Communio – a nonprofit ministry that equips parishes with outreach tools and ministry strategies to grow and draw more souls to Christ through evangelization and discipleship of marriages and relationships. Communio is helping us set some ambitious multi-year Mission Outcomes and create a strategic plan to achieve them. So, you can expect to see some exciting new things here at the parish over the coming weeks, including:
- Enhancing existing ministry and developing a new series of events and experiences that build up community and friendships within our church and with those in our community.
- Using new forms of digital and mail outreach to invite people not already connected to our parish to our new ministry experiences.
- Implementing new skills-based ministries that help people in all stages of romantic life – whether you’re single, dating, engaged or married – to strengthen their relationships.
But, before we launch this new initiative, our first big step as parish staff is to understand the unique relationship needs of our parishioners. This will help us select the right events, experiences, and ministries for the coming months and years.
From May 14 through May 21, we will distribute an anonymous, mobile-based relationship health survey to everyone 18 or older. You will have an opportunity to complete the quick 90-second survey on your smartphone during the homilies at all weekend Masses (paper surveys will be available). Questions in the survey were developed by academic experts in the field of relationship education and health studies. The greater survey participation, the better insights our team will have to craft an evangelization strategy to address felt needs of ALL our single, engaged, and married parishioners.
To take the survey, please CLICK HERE or text SETONVA to 42284. Paper copies of the survey are also available in the Narthex.
Please complete all surveys by May 21 or for those taking paper copies, please submit them to the Front Office by May 21.
