Parish Survey Results from the Dean Search Committee

November 20, 2019

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Parish Survey last month. We had a great response, and the candor and insights are most helpful as we move forward. Here’s a brief summary of the findings; for more detailed results, click here.

  • We successfully delivered 502 surveys; of those 160 were returned for a return rate of 32 percent. 

  • Overall, 87 percent of parishioners rated their general sentiment about St. Mary’s as either Very or Somewhat Favorable. 95 percent said St. Mary’s fulfills its mission statement Very Well or Somewhat Well. More than 80 percent of respondents said the overall atmosphere is either Very Joyous or Somewhat Joyous.

  • The three most cited strengths of St. Mary’s were the music ministry, the building/physical edifice, and the diversity of the congregation and its community outreach. However, even though the building and the community outreach are seen as strengths, both drew unfavorable responses as well. “Building Maintenance” and “Achieving a Better Balance Between Congregation and Community” were frequently cited as “areas of potential change.”

  • The state of St. Mary’s finances emerged in this survey as the area of greatest current concern. When asked to list what St. Mary’s should change, financial health was one cited most often. 

  • In the survey question asking for input on qualities needed by a new dean, Management/Administrative/Business Skills/Organized ranked among the top five qualities. Other qualities include New Direction, New Ideas, New Energy as well as Friendly and Compassionate.
