This anonymous survey will help us better understand why people participate with our Parish and ministries and provide another way of sharing your hopes for the Parish. It should take no more than 20 minutes to complete. Access the survey here. https://docs.

The Strategic Planning Committee thanks everyone who participated in the Listening Sessions this past weekend! The ideas shared were very energizing and helpful to us as we move forward! Thank you! The next phase of our work will involve the Steering Committee (SC) and the Strategic Planning Work Group (SPWG) doing interviews with various people and organizations that have or have had connections with St. Malachi’s over the years. Along with the surveys and information parishioners are giving us in various ways, we want to understand our broader relationships in the Cleveland community and learn from them.
The SC and SPWG will spend most of September compiling and digesting all of this material. We will then present the Main Options to be explored to Parish Council. These are very “key” steps in this process and we want to give these steps the time needed to produce a quality outcome. The Options will be shared with the Parish at the end of September-Stay Tuned! While the SC and SPWG are doing the above work, we are also asking that PARISHIONERS STEP FORWARD to join an Option Team. Each Option Team will take a “deep dive “ into a particular option to discern its pros and cons beginning in mid-October.
The Training Session to be on an Option Team is Saturday, October 15th,9AM-3:30PM. PLEASE contact a member of the Steering Committee below to volunteer for an Option Team. We need everyone’s help to create our BEST FUTURE! Thank you all! The Steering Committee (Jim Connell, Cathy Graham, Joe Nagel, Therese Mullen and Pat Masterson). Please complete the survey. This helps the team judge the number of ACTIVE Parish members and provides more information to discern viable options. Y
