Introductory Letter

How can we best accomplish what God has in mind for us? How can we best use the gifts and talents of the people who are a part of this parish community? These are important questions, and we have been wrestling with them for quite some time at Christ the King Parish. 

And we want to hear from each of you. In the coming weeks, we will conduct Gallup’s Member Engagement (ME25) survey, a census of all adult members of our parish that will give you the opportunity to share your opinions about some of the key aspects of our parish life.

The survey will be administered by Gallup, an independent research company known for its understanding of people and their opinions. Although most of us know Gallup for its polling work, the organization has been listening to people’s opinions and studying successful organizations for several decades. 

Your opinions are completely confidential; Gallup will not reveal any individual responses to anyone. After we have received the results from Gallup, we will use them to continue a dialogue about our parish and how we can more effectively accomplish our mission. We all have a stake in the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead.

The success of this effort hinges on the completion of the survey by each one of us who is at least 18 years of age. We all share equally in our responsibility to reach the goal of 100% participation by our parish. Your opinions are important and need to be heard.

This is an exciting time for our parish. We are taking important steps toward fulfilling God’s purpose for us now and in the years to come. The process and subsequent dialogue will help us all in that effort.


This will be the third time Christ the King has taken the ME25. The first time we took the survey was in 2013, we did it again in 2016 and we are doing it again in February 2019. This survey and it results gives us measurable data, data that compares apples to apples — looking at the overall health of our parish and over time.

Here is a graph of our past results.



Actively Engaged:

  • Those who attend Mass regularly

  • Invite others to parish activities or Mass

  • Give generously of their talent, time, and treasure

  • Have a strong and healthy emotional connection to our parish.

Not ‘Yet’ Engaged:

  • May or may not attend Mass regularly

  • Rarely invite others to parish activities or Mass

  • Contribute some amount of talent, time, and treasure

Actively Disengaged

  • Are less emotionally connected to the parish

  • May attend Mass 2-4 a year OR may be physically present but spiritually or emotionally absent

  • Usually do not invite others to parish activities or Mass

The 2019 results will be shared with the parish and it will help form our direction in the coming years.
