The Vestry and Strategic Planning Committee updates.
Dear St. James Parishioners,
The Vestry of St. James Episcopal Church is very interested in hearing from YOU! We want to gain a clear sense of our parish priorities and to understand the needs and expectations of our members. For these reasons, we invite you to participate in this survey to assess the current state of St. James and to share your views on our future opportunities. The results of this survey will be an integral component of our recently launched strategic plan and will be shared with the parish later this spring.
The survey will be available from February 1– 21 and will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. Everyone in your household 18 years or older is invited to complete an individual survey. The surveys are anonymous and results will be consolidated by our consultant, Scarborough Consulting Services. You are strongly encouraged to complete this online version of the survey, and you may begin by clicking the link below at any time. If you prefer a paper copy of the survey, please contact the St. James Episcopal Church office by clicking here, or by phone at 225-387-5141.
Thank you in advance for your thoughtful and prayerful responses,
Lee Griffin The Very Rev. J. Mark Holland
Sr. Warden Rector
In the next few days, all parishioners will be receiving an introductory letter from Senior Warden, Lee Griffin, inviting you to participate in Strategic Planning for the future of St. James. You will also receive an online introductory letter with a link to the online survey for The Strategic Planning for St. James Episcopal Church.
This survey is the opportunity for you to express your ideas as to what you think are the best choices St. James can make for our future health as a Christian community living out our mission: We proclaim Christ crucified and risen, and invite you to join with us in ministry together in His name.
You are urged to participate. If you are unable to take the survey online, we will have volunteers in the parish hall to use their laptops taking your survey for/with you on Sundays, February 8 and February 15 during the coffee hour at 10:00 a.m. If you have no computer and need a hard copy, call the church office at 225-387-5141 after the survey opens on February 1.
