Introduction

As a part of restoring the St. Albert the Great Sanctuary after the winter freeze, some potential renovations to the Sanctuary have been identified.  Fr. Charlie has received requests to renovate the church and would like feedback from the entire parish to guide his discernment of what renovations are needed and when. NO EXTRA DEBT will be taken on for any future renovations and we would only do a renovation when the funds are raised.  Please complete this survey to provide your feedback on these potential renovations.

In addition, some possible outdoor area amenities have been identified as future enhancements and your feedback on these is requested to provide information for Parish planning purposes.

Complete one survey per family unit attending St. Albert the Great.

Question Title
