Paper surveys are due no later than May 3; online surveys are due no later than May 9.

We kicked off St. Margaret’s Mutual Ministry Review in April. Mutual Ministry Reviews are a chance for congregations to pause in their busy schedules and reflect on the work that you are doing. It’s akin to a wellness visit with your doctor. We are going to look at twelve areas that are indicators of strength and health in congregations to see where things are going well and where we need to focus some energy and effort as we go forward. In order to do this well, we need your input. I have put together a survey of 24 questions (2 on each area) for you to respond to, of which I will use the results (along with a longer version your clergy and vestry will fill out) as the foundation for the MMR. Along with your vestry and priest, we can evaluate this data at our retreat on May 16. 

The survey will be available online until 9 a.m. on Friday, May 8. Paper copies of the survey are also available in the parish office. We know that several of you have had technical difficulties with the survey, so please pick up a paper copy as soon as possible. If you are filling out the form on paper, it is due back to the parish office by Sunday, May 3, so that your responses can be inputted into the online survey for evaluation.

I look forward to being with you this spring and am praying for you daily in the meantime. Thank you for your contributions and patience in this process.
