With assistance from the Diocese of Burlington, members of our parishes may now make weekly parish offertory contributions on-line via a secure website. Since members of Our Lady of the Snows/St. Patrick Parish have expressed an interest in on-line giving, we are making this option available to them first.
Please help us participate by completing a 10-15 minute survey as soon as possible.
– Go to www.disciplemakerindex.com
– You may also complete the survey manually – copies are available in each Church, or you can obtain a copy by contacting the Rectory (244-7734).
The survey, for parishioners ages 18 years of age and older, available from 2/25/19 to 3/31/19 (electronic and manual), will ask you to reflect on your own spiritual growth and enable you to provide feedback on our parish’s efforts to help you grow. All responses will be confidential and the parish will only receive information about the community as a whole.
We are trying to get the highest response rate possible. This information will be invaluable to our Parishes and our various ministries as we plan for the future and strive to be the best disciples we can be. We will receive the results this spring/summer at which time we will share what we have learned with the entire parish. Thank you for helping with this important project!
(This survey is a follow up to the Diocesan Synod. Oftentimes, church and secular meetings end up not following up or moving to action what was started in deliberation. This survey is intended to place into action what the Synod began.) Thank you for your participation!
You are invited to join more than 14,000 Catholic communities across the United States – in a life-changing Lenten journey of encounter with CRS Rice Bowl. During the 40 days of Lent, as companions on the journey, we will encounter our neighbor. Please visit the Rice Bowl website each week to view videos of our brothers and sisters around the world who benefit from their important work.
