Parish-wide Planning Study

Dear Parishioners of Visitation Parish,

Over the next several weeks, all parishioners of Visitation Church will be asked to participate in a parish-wide Planning Study. The purpose of the study is to determine the scope and dimensions of a potential Capital Campaign. A pledge campaign is being considered by parish leaders and volunteers to help provide the necessary funds to address a variety of long overdue restoration projects. These projects will impact our future and focus on all of our facilities.

The Planning study will consist of personal interviews with a cross-section of parishioners, a direct mail survey and an on-line one. Material will also be made available at our Masses. All parishioners will be asked to complete a questionnaire regarding our proposed projects.

The questionnaires and an information sheet which details the projects and their projected costs will be shared with all parishioners. We promise to keep you informed on when and how you can participate in this important parish endeavor.

The information you provide will be anonymous and all comments and quotes will be held in the strictest of confidence. Your involvement in this effort will help us ascertain the best course of action to take for Visitation Parish. Our goal is to complete the study during the month of October with the hope of beginning the campaign soon after. However, before this can happen we will need to have the full support of all families and individuals who call Visitation their spiritual home. At the conclusion of the study we will be sure to share our findings with the entire parish. Thank you.

Fr. Jim
