Discipleship Survey

Who is Jesus Christ to you?
What impact does He have on your life?

This Lent, our parish has the exciting opportunity to participate in an archdiocesan-wide survey through the Catholic Leadership Institute called The Disciple Maker Index.  This survey provides you with an opportunity to reflect on your relationship with Christ and how our parish supports your spiritual growth. The feedback you share will help us identify opportunities to further enhance our parish ministries, set priorities, and allocate resources to better accompany you in your faith journey.

The information you share will be anonymous. St. Dominic will not see individual responses from this survey. 
Thank you in advance for your continued support of our parish community!

Discipleship Survey

Survey will be opent through April 5, 2020

Take the Survey

 Give us 10-15 minutes with the Discipleship survey. It provides an easy way that we can listen to you. Then, imagine if more people told us how we can help them, and imagine if our parish were better equipped to do that!

Pastor's Letter

St. Dominic Catholic Parish Family,

Our mission at St. Dominic is to seek, know, and become Christ. We are making this commission a major focus of our parish. So far, we have restructured our parish formation department and much work has been done revitalizing our Stewardship Commission. With our staff and Pastoral Council, we are laying the foundation to align our parish ministries around a process to facilitate spiritual growth.

A free survey tool has been made available to us by the Catholic Leadership Institute. It is called The Disciple Maker Index (DMI) Survey. The survey asks you to reflect on your own spiritual growth and identify the ways in which we, the parish, effectively supports that growth. At the completion of the survey, our parish will receive an aggregate report. We will NOT have access to individual survey responses.

The survey will be accessible online and in paper form from Sunday,February 23 through Monday, March 23, 2020. I really encourage every adult, 18 years and older, take time to fill it out. On average, it takes 15-20 minutes to complete. Besides receiving the survey via an email link, there will be additional opportunities to complete this survey.

This survey offers us a unique and important opportunity to learn about issues of importance to families in a confidential and professional way. We will use these results to:

  • Look at opportunities to support your relationship with Jesus,
  • Create goals and action plans for how our parish leaders can help.

The results you provide will help us to better minister to you and shape our parish for the next twenty years!

To help facilitate this survey, we are asking all families in the next two weeks to update their contact information with the parish. Currently, for many of you, our database has one email address and phone number for each family. We desire to have an email address and phone number for all adults over the age of 18. Watch for an opportunity to complete a contact information form via email or call the Parish Center to verify the information we have on record.

Thank you in advance for your assistance and for sharing your spiritual journey through the survey. Meanwhile, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact Andrew Schueller, Director of Formation who is the lead for this endeavor.

Rev. Dennis J. Saran
