Thank you for being willing to participate in Remain in My Love, an initiative to revitalize Christian marriage and family life in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. The purpose of this survey is to allow married couples and families to give the pastors and leaders of the local Church of Philadelphia constructive and honest feedback about how well we are serving you in living fully your vocation to marriage and family life.
This survey is anonymous. Your responses will be considered for inclusion in a document that will be read by the Archbishop and all pastors of the Archdiocese. The purpose is to help them to assess our current situation and guide the reform of our current practices.
Where possible, we will include your words verbatim so that pastors have an opportunity to hear from you directly, both in your gratitude and your honest critique and petition.
Before you fill out the form, please take a moment to invoke the Holy Spirit, that he may guide your responses so that they are truly constructive and illuminating:
Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful
and kindle in them the fire of your love.
Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created.
And You shall renew the face of the earth.
O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit,
did instruct the hearts of the faithful,
grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise
and ever enjoy His consolations,
Through Christ Our Lord, Amen.
