February 8/9, 2020 - Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Ss. Peter & Paul and St. Thomas
are participating in
Our Parish Cluster is participating in a parish survey about discipleship conducted by the Catholic Leadership Institute as part of the Archdiocesan Synod Process! We need your help.
Please help us by participating in a 10-15 minute survey online.
The survey can be accessed via smartphone, tablet or computer by
until Sunday, March 1
and will ask you to reflect on your own spiritual growth and enable you to provide feedback on your Parish's efforts to help you grow. All responses will be confidential and our parishes will only receive information about the community as whole.
We are trying to get the highest response rate possible. This information will be valuable to Archbishop Hebda, Fr. Jenson, and our Parishes as we plan for the future and strive to be the best disciples we can be. We will receive the results this spring, at which time we will share what we have learned.
If you - or anyone you know - does not use a smartphone, tablet or computer
- there will be paper copies available at the church entrances and in the Parish Centers. We have also attached the survey below, or you can obtain a paper copy by contacting the Parish Offices at 763-479-0535 or 763-420-2385
Thank you for helping with this important project!
