The parish will provide the Center with the names and phone numbers of five
active parishioners who would be willing to answer question in a fifteen minute
telephone interview. There are several reasons for conducting this phone
survey. The first reason was as a consistency check on the results of the parish
written survey. Also, to determine the extent to which catechesis relative to
welcoming the stranger might be needed in the parish community. Additionally, to
elicit suggestions for how the parish could become a more welcoming community.
Finally, like the surveys, it was also hoped that we could get a glimpse of
Godís will for this parish in terms of welcoming the newcomer, since one of the
ways God speaks is through the community of believers.
