Your Input Is Needed - 2015 Parish Community Survey

As I continue to listen and learn about the state of our Parish and to try and determine the needs I would very much like your feedback on the following; 

  •  What are the hallmarks of the St. John Vianney, Walnut Creek parish community?
  •  What are the top 1-2 things you like about our parish and therefore we should continue to do and build on?
  •  What are the top 1-2 things you would like to see us add to the community or do differently?

As your input is very important and valuable to us we've made the survey simple and convenient and provide a few options that we hope will encourage your participation: 

  • Click here and complete the survey online anytime between January 13th to 26th, 2015
  • Complete the survey manually (click here to print a copy) and return it in the collection baskets at the Masses this weekend, January 17th & 18th  and next, January 24th & 25th or drop it by the parish office. 

During the weekend of January 24th & 25th, I will ask those who have not yet completed the survey to do so at Mass. There will be a short homily at each Mass followed by the opportunity to answer the questions (a short survey will be in pews).

We will take the feedback you provide and do the following;

  • Share with you the findings
  • Identify those things we can and will do to continue to make our Parish as spiritually and physically (infrastructure) pertinent/attractive and viable as is possible.

I look forward to your candid comments.

Blessings, Fr. William
