STARK COUNTY

In response to the priorities outlined in Bishop David J. Bonnar's pastoral letter, Testify to the Light, our parish is joining with other parishes throughout the Diocese of Youngstown in performing a community needs assessment. Bishop Bonnar states, "We cannot be a church that exists solely for ourselves. We need to be a Servant Church that reaches out to the poor, homeless, imprisoned, sick, lonely and forgotten, keeping in mind that whatever we do for the least of our brothers and sisters we do to Jesus."

With this in mind, we need your feedback. Please take a few moments to complete this survey about your local parish community.
