Renew My Church

The parish bulletin for Easter Sunday 2016 included the first invitation for parishioners to participate in an online survey of the Archdiocese of Chicago as part of the Renew My Church initiative to foster vibrant and vital parishes.

In a letter dated June 16, 2016 Archbishop Cupich congratulated Saint Hugh Parishioners on our Top Ten response to the survey. As a percentage of our previous October Count (351) our 161 responses was nearly 46% - among the best of all the parishes in all of Cook and Lake counties.

 

The survey says….

On December 29, 2016 we received our survey results in three PDF files.

The first is the collection of written responses to the open ended question:

What are you most proud of about your parish or what makes your parish unique? Please list up to three things.

Since we were asked for as many as three things three alphabetized, but unedited, lists make up the first file.

To access the complete first file, click:  St. Hugh Free Response

The second file has colored charts and presents both the responses from Saint Hugh Parishioners and a comparison to the whole Archdiocese. Demographic information was followed by general questions about parishes and what is important to parishioners. Not surprising, those who attend Mass weekly are much more likely to complete an Archdiocesan survey. When the members of our pastoral staff looked at the results at our January staff meeting, we noticed that when, from a list of options, the top three or five choices were highlighted, the Saint Hugh priorities were very much in common with the Archdiocese as a whole.

To access the complete second file, click:  St. Hugh Parish Report

The third file contains lists of other places of worship mentioned by those who took the Saint Hugh Survey. Of the 161 respondents, 101 of you worship exclusively at Saint Hugh.

To access the complete third file, click:  Mass Attendance Pattern

We should be proud of our parish and of our participation in this process of the Archdiocese of Chicago. Pray for Renew My Church.
