Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
We love our Orthodox Faith, but we sometimes forget that our responsibility is also to share it with others. This is what we mean by "evangelization and outreach." We ask for a few minutes of your time to help us find the best ways to share our Faith with non-Orthodox America.
 
The Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of the USA has launched a national study "Sharing Our Faith: Evangelization and Outreach in U.S. Orthodox Parishes." Through this study, we will discover how Orthodox parishes live out our Faith in the 21st century America, how they connect to their local neighborhoods, and how they reach out to non-Orthodox people.

Our goal is to gather as many personal reflections as possible. Everyone's opinion matters and there are no "right" and "wrong" answers. After answering survey's questions, you are also invited to offer any additional comments. The survey is anonymous.
 
If you cannot finish the survey in one sitting, you can save a partially completed survey and return to it later.
 
If you wish to save a partially completed survey and return to it later, please, follow these simple steps:
1. Answer the questions in the order they are asked. Do not "jump" between questions.
2. Finish the survey page that you are working on and click "NEXT" at the end of this page. This will save your answers. You can now close the survey window or tab on your computer.
3. To resume the survey, simply use the same invitation email (save it!) with the web-link that was given to you. The only requirement is that the entire survey should be completed on the same computer (or tablet). 
 
Important: When working on the survey do NOT hit the "back button" on your Internet browser, because this will take you to the very beginning of the questionnaire (not to the previous page of the survey).
 
Also, please have as many Orthodox members (age 14+) of your household as possible separately complete this survey. Even if you are a married couple and believe that your opinions are similar, we still ask that each one of you answer this questionnaire on your own.
 
If you have any questions about this study, please communicate with me directly at:

On behalf of your Bishop and all the other Orthodox Hierarchs in the United States, we thank you for your help.
