Introduction to the Synod Survey

The purpose of the Catholic Church’s Synod is to reflect and set forth on a “journey together” that strengthens the Church by addressing challenges, obstacles and wounds, all while celebrating the Gospel.

The Vatican is relying on your voice. Each parishioner of St. James the Apostle is invited to reflect and provide their thoughts that will help the Church shape her mission of evangelization and forming disciples. We are blessed with this opportunity which will allow us to communicate with Rome through our local Diocese of Joliet. 

A brief survey has been by a team from the Parish Council.  It asks you to provide your thoughts on your journey to grow and develop your relationship with Jesus Christ through your parish community.

You may find a link to the survey below. For those who prefer a paper copy, you will find it on the pages that follow. Once completed, either place it in the offertory basket at the back of church, drop it off at the Ministry Center or mail it to: St. James the Apostle Parish, 480 S. Park Blvd., Glen Ellyn, IL 60137. We will be forwarding your ideas to our diocese. We thank you in advance for your prayerful responses.
