St. Ann Parish’s CARA Parish Life Survey
St. Ann parish conducted a survey last year to measure the effectiveness of our programs and to assess the greatest needs of our parish community. The survey was conducted by the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate (CARA), a Catholic research center. The results will help us better serve all those who celebrate Mass here and the findings will be used as we plan for the next five years. Thank you for all those who participated. The parish presentation and full report are posted here.
