Please Help the Parish by Taking a Short Survey

We are asking registered SJB parishioners to complete this anonymous survey:

The purpose is to gather data on Mass attendance and ministries participation in our parish. The information will be used by the Parish Pastoral Council to organize an in-parish reflection on strategies to restore and increase a greater participation in both. The format of the general meeting will be the same as was employed for the synod reflection in 2022. All responses are anonymous.  If you do not have access to a computer or a smart phone, please pick up a paper copy of the survey in the church at Mass on Sunday, February 12.

Thank you for your participation.
This Parish Survey may be completed using the link below or this QR code. 

The survey is also on the St. John the Baptist parish website
