Benchmark Study 2019-2020: This Is Our Story

by | May 31, 2020

This is our FEAST DAY Weekend!
Our Feast Day commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit on the disciples of Jesus, following HIS ascension from earth to heaven, 50 days after Easter.
In celebration of our FEAST DAY, I am releasing OUR STORY.
This is the full report from our 2019-2020 Benchmark Study.
What feels like a long wait is worth it. This Study follows deep analysis, deliberating, and prayer. It provides a framework to set our direction going forward toward the vision of our revitalized parish.

THANK YOU for participating in this important parish opportunity to learn more about WHO we are – and who will proclaim ourselves to be going forward.

With thanks to you and ~300 parishioners who provided feedback and offered comments using our in-church paper survey last Fall.  We now have a benchmark assessment on where we stand, and the challenges we face to fulfill our Baptismal Call as Holy Spirit Parish.

It is a privilege to learn about your thoughts and feelings toward Holy Spirit Parish, which brings together people who have attended St. Augustine’s, St. Matthew’s and St. Rose of Lima.

You will see yourself reflected in this report, quantitatively and qualitatively among the ~100 personal comments that you and other parishioners generously shared.

This report represents a fully-formed picture of ourselves, of our HOLY SPIRIT PARISH.

It is an honour to bring OUR STORY to YOU.

There will be an opportunity to converse, in person. For now, feel free to email: and please include the SUBJECT line: Mission

In Christ,

Father David
