2023 Parish Survey

“Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light for my path.” – Psalm 119:105

The Friars, Deacons, Staff, and Parish Advisory Board invite you to participate in a new, parish-wide survey, as an opportunity to reflect and review how Sacred Heart serves our faith community and the community at large. You will be asked questions about the future of the parish, and how we can add new opportunities for fellowship, collective prayer, and outreach to continue to meet the needs of our parishioners and visitors.

  • Please allow 12-15 minutes to complete the survey.
  • All registered parishioners are encouraged to participate.
    • If you have regularly attended Mass at Sacred Heart for more than three (3) months, but are not yet registered, please feel free to take part.

  • All responses to this survey will remain anonymous.
    • Email addresses collected will not be tied to your response, and serve only to protect against duplicate submissions.
