Help Us Determine Parish Viability Measures

So, what does a viable parish look like? You can help identify the criteria needed to make that determination by completing the synod survey you received earlier this month. Completed surveys can be submitted by mailing it to: Survey Archdiocese of Dubuque, 1229 Mt. Loretta Ave, Dubuque, IA 52003. Better yet you can access the survey in English, Spanish or French at www.dbqarch.org/survey. It’s due no later than Tuesday, March 1, 2022.
