The weekend of November 4th and 5th, at all the masses, we will conduct the ME25 survey that will evaluate the spiritual health of our parish and its parishioners.
The ME25 survey can be completed by parishioners aged 16 years and up. (M stands for membership, E for engagement) The ME25 survey has been conducted in parishes throughout North America, including some in the Archdiocese of Toronto. This survey is anonymous and your name, email, and personal information are NOT taken.
Understanding The Gallup ME25 Survey
For over 70 years, Gallup has been developing systems that accurately measure engagement and other “intangibles.” Traditionally, parishes have measured themselves primarily by their attendance, membership, and monetary giving. However, these are outcomes, not causes, of a parish’s spiritual health. The ME25 survey consists of 25 multiple choice questions: 9 measure individual spiritual commitment, 12 measure parishioner engagement, and 4 are about life satisfaction—inviting, serving, and giving. The survey also has some demographic questions to answer.
For those who are unable to do the survey at the November 4th & 5th Weekend Masses
To do the survey online, can you do so by going directly to https://survey.gallup.com/nativityofourlordetobicoke2023
If you wish, you can choose to fill out a paper survey and drop it off at the parish office. Copies of the survey can be found at the parish office or the church exits.
We wish to allow our parishioner the opportunity to participate in this survey, but do note that the final day for you to submit a paper survey or online survey will be 2 pm Sunday November 26th.
This survey’s results will help us as we continue a process that will help our parish and its parishioners fulfill God’s purpose for us now and in the years to come. I thank all of you in advance for your participation in this parish-wide initiative!
God bless you! Fr. Michael
