Dear Parishioners AND Former Parishioners of St. Bridget Parish,
Jumbo to you and your family.
Last November, hundreds of parishioners came together for a Town Hall meeting to discuss the challenges our parish currently faces. One of the results of this productive meeting was the need for a parish survey.
This past June I created the Healing Commission so we could listen as a parish to your concerns and suggestions. The members of the commission formulated an anonymous survey to allow us to seek your valuable feedback. We cannot grow stronger together unless we understand what is at the core of your hurt and joy. We want to know what you love about this parish and where you believe there's room for improvement.
Please take a few moments of reflection to complete this anonymous survey. We ask ALL adult members of your family to complete the survey. Tell us your story, as each of you has been impacted by our parish differently. We need to hear from your heart and hope this is a major step that begins a path of improvement and reconciliation here at St. Bridget.
The Healing Commission will review each and every one of the survey responses, and then highlight the prominent themes that concern parishioners. We're confident that parishioners do not expect our commission to address each and every concern of the survey responses, but rather the important themes. We also recognize there are no sure guarantees in solving what ails some parishioners.
Please also pass this survey along to three friends. They can be current or former members of our community. We want to hear from everyone. By providing your input, we look to make improvements in our community that makes you proud to call this parish, home.
Together we are, St. Bridget Parish.
Fr. Stephen Okumu and the Healing Commission
