A Message from the Profile Committee


We are inviting you to complete the Church Assessment Tool (CAT), an on-line instrument that will help gauge the strength, vitality, and trends in our church.  The information gained from this assessment will be valuable in writing the parish profile and helping the leader of St. Margaret’s as they make decisions about the future of St. Margaret’s as we call a new rector.

Attached to this email is a unique link to the CAT survey.  


We are asking you to go online by clicking the link provided and tell us about your experiences in and priorities for our church.  Please do not discuss the survey or your answers with others as this may influence their answers.

If you need a paper copy, please see a member of the Profile Committee in the Narthex between services and turn your paper survey into the box by the Welcome Center.

NOTE: If there is only one email address for all members of your household, it may be tempting to have one person take the survey on behalf of the family.  However, please be sure your spouse and all young adults living in your home have an opportunity to complete the survey. INDIVIDUAL INPUT is key to our gaining insight into overall perceptions and experiences.

Please set aside enough time to answer all the questions.  This will take about 30 minutes.  


All answers are strictly anonymous.  We have no way of matching any assessment to a particular person, so please feel free to candidly share your perceptions, opinions, and experiences.  Our future together is dependent on your participation and honest answers.

If you have questions, please contact:
