This is a survey we distributed for completion at our ministry meeting with Father Daniel on Sept. 2, 2008. If you did not attend please complete the survey. (If you already completed one at the meeting you do not need to complete this survey.) We ask that you complete the survey no later than Sept. 30, 2008.
Please note that the survey is inquiring as to your scheduling preferences for your service as lector. We will go with the wishes of the majority who respond to the survey, so this is your chance to have your opinions included in the process.
In the near future you will be receiving a summary of our meeting with Father Daniel and a request for volunteers to sign up to staff our table at the ministry fair on Sept. 27 and 28, 2008. Please give these e-mails your prompt attention.
Thank you for your time and attention, and for your service to Saint Mary Cathedral.
Natacha Peláez-Wagner and John Posey, lector ministry coordinators
