DISCIPLE MAKER INDEX SURVEY
We are excited to share with you that our parish is going to participate in a parish survey conducted by Catholic Leadership Institute! The Disciple Maker Index (DMI) Survey allows parishioners to reflect on their own spiritual growth and discipleship and identify the ways in which the parish effectively supports that growth.
The web-based survey will be accessible online at https://portal.catholicleaders.org/d/y0dc63 and in paper form from March 2nd to April 4th . It will take about 10- 15 minutes to complete and Catholic Leadership Institute recommends that only individuals 18 years of age and older complete the survey.
At the completion of the survey, our parish will receive an aggregate report of the results. We will NOT have access to individual survey responses. This survey offers us a unique and important opportunity to learn about issues of importance to families in a confidential and professional way. We will use these results to 1) look at opportunities to support parishioner growth in discipleship and 2) create goals and action plans to achieve that growth. Please take some time to fill out the survey before April 2nd.

Talent Show May 6th!
We would like to survey the interest in having the talent show. This has been a huge tradition at our school and unfortunately we were unable to have it last year or this past January due to Covid Restrictions.
We have the auditorium reserved and we have volunteers ready to run it:)
What we now need is TALENT!
We will need at least 20 acts to make this happen.
They can be single talents, group talents or class acts.
Traditionally parents volunteer to organize a class (ie 1st grade, 3rd grade…ect) act of the kids dancing, singing, or putting on a comedy act.
Individual acts range from musical instruments, dancing, singing, comedy acts, basically any talent that your child would like to perform:)
Please fill out this SURVEY to let us know your interest, this does not commit you in any way, we just want to make sure there is enough interest before we proceed.. We realize this time of year is typically very busy with sports and other activities. This show is usually done in Jan during Catholic Schools weeks, so we understand if this is just not the right time to do this.
