Parish Census (part 1 of 3) Primrose - May 22, 2011

Last Saturday 60 Parishioners visited over 400 homes in the Primrose Area. The purpose of these visits was simply to listen to people's impressions of St. Luke's, update our records, and elicit feedback. After the visits the group gathered for a simple lunch followed by a wrap up session where we shared our experiences. For the most part people had a positive experience. Now we have to follow up on people's questions and needs. This day would not be possible without our Parish Council. Under the Leadership of Kathy Kwolek many people used their organizational skills to reach out to others.

I'm happy to report that data shows that our increased Mass attendance is the fourth best in the Diocese (262 more people than last year). I credit this to our Religious Education Program that has started to do class Masses. Look for more of these Masses (especially at 8:30 and 10:00) in the future. By focusing on making Sunday the Lord's Day we are starting o see some positive trends. Thanks to our music ministry members, ushers, lectors, Eucharist Ministers and altar servers. All of you do such a great job in adding vibrancy to our worship. Thank you.
