4-Question Parish Reopening Survey
4 Question Parish Reopening Survey
As we begin the slow reopening of parish life in the weeks ahead with the celebration of the public Masses, we want to know what you are thinking and feeling. To help us better understand and plan, we would appreciate your responses to this very brief 4-question survey (see link below.)
As you consider how you will celebrate Mass during this time when health considerations are heightened due to COVID-19, we ask you to keep in mind the following:
  • Archbishop Lori continues to grant all Catholics in the Archdiocese of Baltimore dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass.
  • The staff at St. Margaret is working diligently to prepare the worship spaces to lessen the risk of spreading the virus. The safety of our faithful is paramount.
Yours in Christ,
Fr. Kevin
