Planning Study Results

ST. MARY MAGDALENE
CATHOLIC CHURCH


PLANNING STUDY
Final Results

December 2016

Dear Parishioners and Friends,

I have some exciting news to share!

RESULTS REVEALED
Recently, St. Mary Magdalene Catholic Church conducted a planning study to gather input about a major capital construction project. The Steier Group, a development consulting firm, recently completed the study and Reported its findings and recommendations to the parish leadership on November 28, 2016. I would like to share some of the significant observations with you:

• 718 responses were received for this planning study.
This is nearly twice what is expected for a study.
• 87% of respondents are in favor of a capital campaign.
• 84% of respondents indicated that they will make
a personal gift to the campaign.
• Respondents generally believe there is a need for more space
for ministries and activities.
• Respondents are excited about the prospect of some expansion of
facilities on the parish campus, but felt the entire Phase 1 was too large
to accomplish all at once.

WHAT'S NEXT
We are listening to your concerns and desires! Based on these positive results,
parish leaders will move forward with a period of discernment and planning,
integrating your responses in the final plan to be proposed in early 2017.

THANK YOU
I appreciate your participation in this critical study for St. Mary Magdalene.
Your input has been extremely beneficial and will help to ensure the success of our
upcoming campaign.

Faithfully in Christ,

Rev. Theo Trujillo
Pastor
