BBBC MISSION: We the Catholic parish communities of Freeport, Illinois, commit to bring all souls to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
We, the BBBC Team, thank you for the Pew Survey feedback and your patience. There are currently nine active members under the direction of Fr. Timothy Barr that have been working toward understanding and organizing those results.
As a reminder, there were four questions on the Pew Survey, as follows:
• What can your Parish community do to better serve your needs?
• How can your Parish community help you come closer to Jesus’ mercy and love?
• Do you think sharing your time and talent would help you come closer to Jesus? How, or why not?
• Are there ministries in which you would like to participate? Circle Yes or No. Please state the name or type of ministry you would like to participate in.
Results/FindingsWe have many active and inactive ministries, and a number of new ones have been identified. The survey results also indicated the need for more effective communication and education. Therefore, a Time and Talent Survey will be conducted in September. We prayerfully encourage you to be actively involved in this survey which will benefit your parish bringing souls to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
As always, if you are interested in joining the BBBC team, we meet bi-monthly in the Daleiden Room below the rectory at St. Joseph Church. The next meeting is planned for July 25 at 7:00 p.m.
We thank you for your feedback and may God bless you abundantly for your service to your parish.
