Parish Survey

Special Needs

Did you know that 1 in 5 people have a special need?

Many of these needs are not diagnosed due to social stigma and shame. We are reaching out to ALL PARISHIONERS for input on this short 6 question Special Needs Survey. The information from the survey will assist our parish in our outreach to individuals and families who live with special needs.
