The Diocese of Greensburg is undertaking a massive effort to listen to a broad range of people throughout our faith community and to discuss major issues together with a goal of hearing where the Holy Spirit is calling the Church. These efforts include a pastoral connectivity survey and a series of both in-person and virtual town hall meetings, at which Bishop Larry J. Kulick will be present.
Bishop Kulick is asking our young people, especially children and young adults to kindly take the 3 minute survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DioGBGSynod
Parents we appreciate your assistance in helping them take the survey if necessary.
