The survey asks you to reflect on your own spiritual growth and enables you to provide feedback on our parish’s efforts to help you grow. All responses are confidential and the parish will only receive information about the community as whole. This information will be invaluable to Msgr. Nicolo and our various ministries as we plan for the future and strive to be the best disciples we can be. We will receive the results this spring/summer at which time we will share what we have learned with the entire parish. Thank you for helping with this important project!


The Disciple Maker Index (DMI) is a survey tool, created by Catholic Leadership Institute to:

  • Allow parishioners to reflect upon their spiritual growth and discipleship;
  • Identify the ways in which the parish effectively supports that growth and look at opportunities to support that growth more in the future;
  • Provide valuable input to help pastors and parish leaders make decisions and plan effectively;
  • Help pastors and parish leaders have a sense of where to focus their evangelization efforts.


The Disciple Maker Index looks at spiritual growth through several different themes:

  • Attitude and Belief Questions: Connections with the local Catholic/parish community, spiritual growth, personal beliefs, and conversations about faith.
  • Participation Questions: How frequently do parishioners participate in various parish activities?
  • Relationship/Satisfaction Questions: Parishioners’ satisfaction with their parish, pastor, and parish activities.
  • Demographic Questions: Understand parish communities and who is responding to the survey.
