PARISH WIDE SURVEY – DISCIPLE MAKER INDEX
We are excited to announce that we, along with the other parishes in the diocese, are participating in a parish-wide survey about discipleship conducted by the Catholic Leadership Institute, a non-profit Catholic apostolate that does leadership training and development. We would like as many parishioners as possible to complete a 10-15 minute survey. The survey will be available until March 27 and will ask you to reflect on your own spiritual growth and enable you to provide feedback on what our parish is doing to help you grow. It is available online at https://portal.catholicleaders.org/d/bbktt5 and in paper format on the table by the wood doors. All responses will be confidential and the parish will only receive information about the community as a whole. The survey results will be invaluable to our leadership as we seek ways to best support everyone in their discipleship journey.

CHILDREN’S LITURGY OF THE WORD
There will be Liturgy of the Word for children at the Sunday morning mass next week, Feb 25. What is Children's Liturgy of the Word? It refers to the practice of children of primary school age leaving the Sunday assembly during the Liturgy of the Word and gathering elsewhere with an adult catechist to celebrate a separate Liturgy of the Word that is more appropriate to their level of understanding. All primary aged children in the congregation are invited to participate in Children’s Liturgy of the Word. Children wishing to participate should come into the center aisle of the church when the priest calls the children forward.

SUMMER MISSION TRIPS
Teens (8th grade and up) and adults: It is time to think about registering for the summer mission trips. Plans are being made for a trip to Kentucky with Christian Appalachian Project (CAP) from June 9 – 14 and to Huntingburg, Indiana with Catholic Heart Work Camp (CHWC) from July 7 -12.
