Saint Francis of Assisi Parish will be participating in a parish survey called Disciple Maker Index (DMI) conducted by the Catholic Leadership Institute, as commissioned by the Diocese of Oakland! We need your help!

Please help us by participating in a 10-15 minute survey online.

• Online: go to https://portal.catholicleaders.org/d/kg2x02

Survey QR Code for Direct access to the Survey
• Paper: You can obtain a paper copy (English and Spanish versions) after daily and Sunday Masses. If you need a version in another language, please contact the Parish Office.
The survey can be accessed through an online link from October 14, 2021, through November 15, 2021, and will ask you to reflect on your own spiritual growth and enable you to provide feedback on our parish’s efforts to help you grow. All responses will be confidential and the parish will only receive information about the community as a whole. We will share the link with you a bit closer to the launch of the survey.

We are trying to get the highest response rate possible. This information will be invaluable to our Pastor (Father Ismael Gutierrez) and our various ministries as we plan for the future and strive to be the best disciples we can be. We will receive the results this spring/summer at which time we will share what we have learned with the entire parish.

If you prefer a paper copy, you may pick up a paper copy of the survey after daily and Sunday Masses starting October 14. They will be located by the Hospitality Room. Once the printable version of the survey becomes available, we will provide the link. To submit the completed paper survey, please drop it off at the designated box located in the church foyer (during masses) or the Parish Office (outside mass times, during its office hours). To make special arrangements for getting a paper copy, please contact Olga Urias at (925) 375-1068

Elena Camilon, the Parish Point of Contact, will be presenting the DMI Survey in the upcoming daily and weekend masses as well as various Ministry meetings. If you have any questions about the survey, please contact Elena at sfasurvey2021@sfaconcord.org. Thank you for helping with this important project!
