St. Joseph Basilica Survey
The leadership of St. Joseph Pastoral Council (PC) is asking for your help in assessing the ability of our church to meet your spiritual needs. The survey not only asks questions about the current ministry and your involvement but also seeks your input on church dynamics and your vision for our future.  It will give the PC a baseline from which to measure if we are moving in directions that we think are important.
 
We ask that any member of the family, 13 years of age or older, complete the survey online by October 27, 2019.  It should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete the questionnaire.  

Your responses are anonymous unless you would like to sign and provide your information on the last page.  We hope that while you complete the survey you find this process helpful in reflecting on your faith, the meaning of the church, and your hopes for the future.  
 
THANK YOU for your time and support.  If you have questions, please contact the parish at oskidavis@sbcglobal.net.
