YOUR OPINIONS ARE VITAL!

Search Committee

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ in the Diocese of Delaware,

    The Search Committee is putting together a profile of our Diocese. To that end we will be holding 26 "Town Halls" around the diocese in the month of October to get people's input about what they hope for our diocese and for our next bishop.

     So that those meetings can be focused on what is of most interest and concern to you, we are sending out this brief survey to help us structure those meetings effectively. We would be very grateful if you would fill it out, either online right here or via a paper copy, which is being made available through the parishes.

     Thank you for your prayerful input. Look for more to come on the times, dates and locations for the Town Halls.


Faithfully,

Steve Boyden and Martha Kirkpatrick, Co-Chairs,

Bishop Search Committee


For more information about the search, please go to www.bishopsearchdiodel.org. Please respond to the survey by October 11.
