Time & Talent Survey, Complete & Return

A new Time & Talent Survey has been passed out for completion as soon as possible! This survey has not been done since fall 2017. For this reason, an updated form needed to be provided to the parish, but as well, the Parish Council felt the completion of the Church renovation was a good time for the form update to occur. The Time & Talent Survey is an opportunity for each parish family to reflect on the time and talents you would like to offer our parish over the next year. There are a variety of ministries available to participate in the life of our parish. You may pick up a form in the church vestibule or click here to downloadPlease return your completed form as soon as possible! Return your completed form by placing in the collection basket, dropping off at or mailing to the Parish office. The Pastoral Council deeply appreciates your prayerful consideration of sharing your time and talents as you complete this form.
