In his pastoral letter, A Light Brightly Visible, Archbishop Lori invites us to “be missionary disciples” and to consider what being a “missionary disciple” calls you to do personally and what it calls our parish to do.
Last fall each parish in the Archdioceses was asked to reach out to those who come to its services, including those who attend occasionally with a survey. The survey was not a demographic one but one that seeks to understand the spiritual needs of Catholics. We had a great response rate and now have the results of this survey for St. Vincent. In addition to the survey data the Archdiocese sent an executive summary of St. V demographic data compared to other parishes in our region and to the Archdiocese as a whole.
