Mass Survey

In August 2015, a survey was created and given to the Parish; the results are here: Mass Survey Results. In summary, 780 responses from the roughly 2000 St. Brendan families, with 69% of those requesting to keep the same core Masses and drop the Sunday Evening Youth Mass.

Fr. Jim announced the changes at the Masses on Sept 5th and 6th, 2015

More information to come.
