Department of Christian Education Survey 2010


Dear Pastors and Church School Directors,

Ten years ago we surveyed our Church Schools to learn their needs, and the numbers of students and teachers we serve. Once again we are asking for a few minutes of your time so that we may determine the usefulness of the programs we offer, your needs, and the numbers we serve. We need only one survey per parish, preferably completed by the Church School Director, but in his or her absence, by the parish priest.

Please make sure you complete each field and that you receive confirmation that your survey has been received after clicking "Submit".

The survey results will be made known through our website, and also in our newsletters in The Word. I would like to call your attention to our newest endeavor, namely, a listserv, so that we can offer news updates via email. Thank you, as always, for your efforts in the Orthodox Christian Education of our children.

If you have trouble completing the survey online, here are two other formats, PDF and Word. Mail completed surveys to: Dept. of Christian Education, 105 Leader Heights Road, Suite 130, York, PA 17403.

Your servant in Christ,
Carole A. Buleza, Director
