Church communication is about sharing information in a proactive way to keep you informed and engaged. St. Vincent's is conducting a social media/communications survey to build a baseline of information on how people are using parish social media and other forms of communication today. The insights and observations we gain from this data will be used to craft better social media and communication strategies.
Please take a few minutes to complete this short survey before October 31. Each member of your family is welcome to complete the survey so we can obtain a broad range of responses.
