Parish Census

If you come to Mass in our church, please fill in the census form by clicking here.

Every now and again we notice that a regular parishioner has suddenly stopped coming to Mass. This may be for any one of several reasons: perhaps they have moved away; perhaps they have gone to another parish; or perhaps something has gone wrong. Sometimes we have discovered later that they were sick but we couldn’t get in touch with them because we didn’t have any contact details. We have even had people complain that none of the priests ever came to see them but, again, we often don’t have contact details.

We would like to carry out a census of the parish, and today we shall begin handing out leaflets inviting everyone who comes here to Mass to complete the details and return the form so that we can provide better pastoral care for you, the people who come here to the Oratory for Mass. Even if you think we already have your details, please do complete the form.

The form also includes details about events and groups in the parish that you might not realize exist, so giving you the chance to become more involved in the life of the parish if you would like to.

You will also have the chance to ask questions of the Fathers or of members of the Parish Advisory Group. All the information you offer will, of course, be treated as confidential and will not be handed on to others. You will also be able to complete the form on-line clicking the link above.

Thank-you in advance for helping us to get to know you better.
