Dear members of the Diocese of Central Pennsylvania –
Our Diocese and our local parishes are going through a time of change and transformation. The Standing Committee of the Diocese is in the midst of reviewing the effectiveness of the Diocese and needs your input to ensure that all voices are heard.
This survey is an opportunity for all members of the Diocese to offer feedback to about our life together as a Christian community. Your responses will help our Diocese to and grow in faith and practice.
The format is simple: “Three Pluses and a Wish.” (Responses are “anonymous” to encourage all members to freely express themselves.)
The three Pluses should be distinct and thoughtful. The Pluses are descriptions or statements of what you think are the Diocese’s strengths, what the Diocese does well, or in what way/s the Diocese meets your spiritual and church community’s needs. Please be concise and descriptive—do not use “empty” adjectives such as “wonderful” or “nice”. Be specific about what you value most about life in our Diocese.
Your Wish is a suggestion for improvement or a critique of any aspect(s) of our church life. What do you think Diocesan leadership can do better? If the Diocesan leadership can be more responsive to your needs, exactly how? What can we do differently, change, add? The Wish can be something big or some seemingly “silly” detail. (God is in the details.) It is important only that you are forthright and descriptive. Your candid feedback will help our Diocese to remain strong and help us all grow in our faith together.
Thank you for the gift of your honest feedback. We ask that you complete the survey by Friday, July 6, so the Diocesan Effectiveness Review team can read and synthesize the feedback received into its report to the Standing Committee and the Bishop.
