John Costa, Thursday 23 April 2020
Having no idea how long the COVID-19 situation will remain or for how long our churches will be closed, our Parish, like many others, has made comprehensive special arrangements, particularly for the Holy Week and Easter period. Special arrangements and information flow are continuing, via personal emails, streaming video, and this website.
In order to both assess and review special arrangements provided so far, and what arrangements we might make ahead, we conducted an online survey to seek parishioner feedback on these to assist us in reviewing and developing how we pray and gather together in very different ways. While we continue to analyse and respond to Survey responses they are already especially interesting, most helpful, and highly encouraging!
The survey was responded to by 51 parish households. Each year after Easter we invite feedback via the Newsletter on the Holy Week Easter liturgies. This year's feedback via online survey greatly exceeds the level of feedback in previous years, and provides particularly interesting insights. Despite appropriately enforced lock-down and disruption the the results this year have been highly consistent, positive and encouraging. The survey closed on 23 April and results are now summarised on this new website page.
Responses to the Survey's main questions (1, 2, 3 & 4) are clearly shown graphically
