First, I want to thank each of the 588 of you who took the time to fill out our parish engagement survey earlier
in the year!
I am happy to report that those who responded are overwhelmingly pleased with our efforts to make our
parish a place of spiritual growth and loving community. Of those who responded, 488 answered the
question “what is your overall opinion of how well the parish is meeting the needs of you and your family?”
Over 87% of parishioners responded with a rating of “Good” or higher.
In every category – except for the sound system – you rated OLA between “Good” and “Very Good”. You will
find these ratings throughout our survey report, but there is more. In some cases a significant number of comments
have highlighted areas where there is a need for improvement. I have discussed these items with my staff and
fellow clergy. A number of them are addressed in this report. This is not the end to our work. I will continue to
review the survey results with our parish leaders and we will issue an additional report in the Fall.
