2017 Holy Cow Survey Results!

Dear Fellow Parishioners-


As you remember, we took the HOLY COW Survey in August.  The Strategic Planning Committee began to examine the results of the survey in detail in late September.     The Committee includes the vestry, the council chairs, clergy, staff, and other interested individuals.  The Committee has met regularly and read the 20-page summary carefully.  We are trying to examine the results and discuss how best to implement those results into our programs and parish life.  We are now asking for your help in this process.


The survey reflected the following major priorities for concern, improvement and innovation:

  • Education
  • Outreach
  • Worship


There were other topics, too, including attracting young families as members, clergy leadership, enhancing pastoral care, improving communication, and developing more events and small groups to strengthen relationships among parishioners.  We are including the Summary Page of the Holy Cow Survey with this letter.  If you want to review the complete results, contact the office for a digital copy.


We are also including a short summary of our discussion points from our November 18th meeting.  One or two words do not convey the full discussion, but you may get a feel for the process.  Our priorities are tentative.  We absolutely want your opinions.          Our objective is to enhance, to energize, and to improve, not to criticize or discourage current programs.  Where should we place our energy and resources to improve our Parish?


  Please take the time to review these materials provided and develop your questions and comments for the meeting.
