Survey - Diocese of Columbus
Disciple Maker Index Survey
We need 100% Participation
St. Elizabeth Parish will be participating in the diocesan-wide Disciple Maker Index (DMI) Survey between now and March 22nd. This nationally-recognized Survey has been administered at parishes around the United States and Canada since 2013. St. Elizabeth Parish, as part of the Diocese of Columbus Real Presence Real Future planning process, will participate in this Survey during Lent. The results from our parish in this Survey will not only be used for informtion and planning for our own parish, but will also be included in the national results which track trends, growth, and Church-related opportunities nationwide.
You can take the Survey (click on Survey) or you can type the following in your internet browser https://www.catholicleaders.org/columbusdmi As you scroll down the website page, look for St. Elizabeth Church (not Seton) and click to open the Survey. A paper copy of the Survey will be available at the parish through March 22nd. This is an exciting opportunity for our parish, and we hope you will participate!
The DMI Survey was developed by the Catholic Leadership Institute in conjunction with advising U.S. Bishops and Catholic lay leaders in 2013. The DMI Survey was created as a tool to help more Catholics to grow along their faith journey with Christ and to become more engaged in the community life of the parish. The DMI Survey seeks to provide parishioners an opportunity to reflect on their own spiritual growth as well as provide parish leadership with invaluable insights regarding a parish's strengths and opportunities.
By St. Elizabeth Parish participating in this Survey, the results will provide meaningful input about our parish as we begin our own planning process as part of Real Presence Real Future. The information from the DMI Survey will give insight into our priorities, and into allocation and realignment of resources, over the next few years as our parish strives to more effectively help parishioners along their personal journey of faith. Thank you for your participation!
