Blessed Sacrament Church Survey Summations

Updated: 5 days ago


Survey Concern: Parishioners expressed concern with homilies that are lengthy and unfocused.


Ways being addressed: The Council shared parishioner concerns with Father Severine who shared with the Deacons. The suggestions shared with Father included homilies that are prepared ahead of time, are focused with a spiritual and faith-filled message, and shortened in length to 8-10 minutes. Poor Francis has also addressed the length of sermons and has said to keep them timely. The suggestions for personal references and humor were shared and requested in helping homilies to be more meaningful and interesting.


Survey Concern: Need for additional Eucharistic Ministers and Lectors with timely advance schedule provided to current and new EMs and Lectors.


Ways being addressed: While there is currently a shortage of Eucharistic Ministers and lectors, regular invitations to individuals and posting in bulletin for additional Eucharistic Ministers and Lectors have been ongoing. Note that the more signups recieved, the more flexibility there would be in the schedule. We encourage all parishioners to participate. Training is provided.



Survey Concerns: Lack of events for people, we used to have gatherings, movie nights during the winter, and appreciation breakfasts.


Ways being addressed: To imporve the parish events for parishioners, the Council has brought back the Hospitality Hour after 9:15am Mass, having Wine/Cheese events each season following the 5:15pm Mass, and are working to have a parish pinic or gathering this summer. Parishioners interested in helping to plan or assist with social gatherings, please contact Mary Roulston at mroulston16@yahoo.com.
