August 28, 2015 – The Parish Pastoral Council selected the top five action items from the parish survey. The Stewardship Committee will be making a report to the Parish at all masses. Members of the parish will be invited and encouraged to join selected focus groups that will be dealing with one of the five action items. Their mission will be to define the concerns in terms of the parish needs and plan strategies addressing these critical concerns. The focus groups will make their recommendations back to the survey team by a target date not yet selected. PPC will be kept advised of the progress of these groups. The five action items are: 1.Involvement, Diversity, Outreach, Education and Community.
April 28, 2015 – Mr. Charlie Grobusky presented the status of the activities of the Survey Team to the Parish Pastoral Council. He presented a listing of the top 8 Parish concerns. Comments and observations, as well as possible actions, were included in the report. These 8 categories represent what the team has concluded are the major concerns of the parish at-large. The team recommends that the Parish Council study the Survey Focus Group document and select the “Top Five”. After the selection the parish will be advised that these are the issue that will be worked on going forward. Focus group volunteers will then be formed to understand the issues and concerns and eventually report to both the team and then to the PPC on actions that need to be considered for eventual implementation.
March 1, 2015 – Survey Final Report presented to the congregation.
September 23, 2014 - Mr. Charlie Grobusky presented an update on the Stewardship Committee’s analysis of the Parish Survey Results. The Committee is still in the evaluation process and Kevin Andrews, a statistician and a member of St. Anne Parish is taking the responses and turning them into graphs that can be evaluated. The committee is working on how to determine what these responses are really saying about our parish both good and bad. The survey was divided into 8 categories and each member of the committee was given a category to analyze the responses in their respective category. About 20 questions were selected that had less than an 80% approval rate. Charlie gave several examples of how to determine results using demographics such as age, status, race, mass attendance, numbers of years in parish, etc. Two issues that were very evident in the analysis were communication and involvement. Charlie has put together a small team to begin to drill down the categorized information to determine recommendations for Pastoral Council to consider.
August 26, 2014 – Overall, the results showed that St. Anne is a healthy parish and has many positive attributes. Not only do we need to focus on the areas that need improvement but also focus on what is good about St. Anne such as our Sacrament Program and our Christian Formation Programs for all ages. The Committee took all answers with less than 80% approval rate and is analyzing those answers in more detail. Less than 80% approval rates were found in about 20 questions throughout the survey. The committee will now divide those questions into the category where they belong.
