Survey Results

As part of a comprehensive planning process, in 2013 the Archdiocese conducted a detailed multiple-choice survey of all its parishes. Some 399 individuals responded from Saint Clare's, adding more than 150 written comments, with the full results published here on the parish website. Though not a scientific sample, the feedback was both positive and constructive. On a scale of 1 to 10, the parish received an overall rating of 9.2, including dozens of comments along the lines of: "a model parish." As one might expect with such a large and active congregation, the parish could sometimes be perceived as more hectic than peaceful. And as with most American churches during this time, only a portion of members were actively involved while most were not, especially young adults. Still, member satisfaction with parish life was very favorable, and the survey helped to highlight some areas for possible improvement.
