Fr. Steve’s Column 5-19-24

Here’s the next section of our Parish Survey:  Outreach & Evangelization, which deals with how we reach out to our local community, both in terms of service to those in need, as well as in terms of evangelization in general.  When asked why you participate in these activities, many of you gave beautiful answers about how meaningful it has been to you to participate in programs such as St. Vincent de Paul, the Casserole Program, Giving Tree, and many others.  We are certainly grateful for the broad participation of our parishioners in these ministries.

Of course, one area of focus is what it is that keeps people from participating in these types of activities.  Only one response was given by 5 or more people.

· 12 people cited a lack of time, especially in light of other commitments

Stay tuned, as I’ll report out on the remaining sections of the survey soon!
