St. Michael’s is employing Gallup’s Member Engagement Survey (ME-25) which will give us a collective view of the spiritual health of St. Michael’s.

The data from this survey will show us where we are doing well, and help us see the areas that need our attention to make us a stronger parish.

Members of our parish community are asked to participate in this survey, which opens on Saturday, June 1. The higher our participation rate, the more comprehensive our results will be. The survey will close on Sunday, June 16.

Check out the FAQs below to learn more. If you have any further questions, contact Marvin Matthews by emailing, or by calling 403-249-0423 ext. 158.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the purpose of this survey?

What does the survey entail?

The survey features 25 items carefully chosen to measure engagement and spiritual commitment that are essential to spiritual health. The survey will only take about five minutes to complete.

How is this different from the 2013 parish survey?

The ME-25 survey measures the current spiritual health of a parish. It will provide us with a benchmark upon which we can compare our future growth.

We are asking all parish members aged 18 and older to complete the survey. In addition, any person who considers him or herself part of our parish, regardless of whether he or she is a registered parishioner, is invited to respond to the survey.

You can complete the survey online using the link found on our website or on paper in the parish beginning June 1 (Saturday) and ending on June 16 (Sunday).

What about confidentiality?

How will the survey results be used?

The Parish Leadership Council will receive the compiled results from Gallup and use them to gain additional insight into how you feel about St. Michael’s. We will use the results to identify specific actions we can take to further meet the spiritual needs of our parishioners.
