When I arrived at Gesu, I did a series of “listening sessions” to begin to learn the history, the culture and the hopes and dreams of Gesu Parish. Last year we sent out a survey in which many of you participated. Over this year, the staff has taken great care to look at and discuss all the things we learned in the survey. Some of the results we shared with you by publishing them in the bulletin.
The Parish Council also spent time looking at the results as a way of planning for our future. In conversations with the Parish Council they realized that they would like additional information. Consequently, over the last few weeks, we have been talking to many people and groups in the parish and in the weeks to come we will be meeting with more groups as well. We want to make sure that everyone has an opportunity to give us feedback.
If you would like to help us, we have three simple questions that you could answer: What do you think Gesu’s priorities should be over the next five years; what are Gesu’s greatest strengths; and finally what are Gesu’s biggest challenges. If you would like to participate, simply click here > and answer the questions. We would love to hear from you.
