PASTORAL PLANNING PROJECT

The Pastoral Planning Project, which will help direct the future of our parish, includes input collected through surveys, “Town Hall Meetings”, and face to face input.

The primary method for collecting input is the parish survey. All parishioners are encouraged to take the survey (please click below). Paper surveys will also be available in the Narthex. We will supplement these surveys with various opportunities for face to face input. Our “Town Hall Meetings” will be held on the following dates:

1.       Monday, July 17th after morning Mass in the Benish Center at 9am (English)
2.       Thursday, July 20th from 7-8pm in the Day Chapel (English)
3.       Sunday, July 23rd after the 12:30pm Mass in the Day Chapel (Spanish)
4.       Wednesday, July 26th after Mass from 7:30-8:30pm in the Day Chapel (Spanish)

Everyone’s participation is essential for a successful Pastoral Plan. If you have specific questions about the planning process, please leave a message at PastoralPlan@stmargaretmary.com. We will continue to keep you updated on our progress.

EL PROYECTO DE PLANIFICACION PASTORAL, que nos ayudará a dirigir el futuro de nuestra parroquia, incluye aportaciones recogidos a través de encuestas, reuniones y entrevistas personales.

El método principal de recoger la información es a través de una encuesta parroquial.  Pedimos la participación de todos. (Por favor, tome un momento para completar la encuesta abajo.) Encuestas en papel también están disponibles en el Atrio. Se complementan las encuestas con varias oportunidades de entrevistas de cara a cara. Nuestras "reuniones" se llevarán a cabo en las siguientes fechas:

1.       Lunes, 17 de julio después de la Misa en el centro Benish a las 9 am (Inglés)
2.       Jueves, 20 de julio de 7 a 8 pm en la capilla (Inglés)
3.       Domingo, 23 de julio después de la Misa de 12:30 en la capilla (Español)
4.       Miércoles, 26 de julio después de Misa de 7:30-8:30 pm en la capilla (Español)

La participación de todos es esencial para un exitoso Plan Pastoral. Si usted tiene preguntas específicas sobre el proceso de planificación, por favor deje un mensaje en PastoralPlan@stmargaretmary.com. Continuaremos mantenerlos actualizados sobre nuestros avances.
