Parish Transformation planning has begun here at SMV. What is Parish Transformation? Parish Transformation is a process that all parishes of the Archdiocese will participate in and is focused on:
- Renewing our commitment to the Mission of Christ
- Establishing a firm foundation to accomplish the mission
The ultimate goal is to formulate, realize and renew a unified pastoral vision with a concrete plan that links our parish mission and resources. Nearly 150 parishes across all 6 vicariates and of all types have already entered into the Parish Transformation.
Participation of all parishioners is encouraged and crucial: The Parish Transformation process relies on extensive feedback and conversation with as many parishioners as possible. You can help us begin our planning process by making it a priority to complete a parish survey. The survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete. To complete the survey, CLICK HERE.
Since a majority of parishioners are basic computer users and since the best way to gather and collate data is via organized information services, we are hoping that the majority of parishioners will go on line and complete the Parish Transformation Survey using Survey Monkey. [We will have “hard copies “ available in September for those who are more comfortable using this form.]
