SCOTTISH CHURCHES CENSUS
Fr John writes  4000 churches of all denominations across Scotland are being askd to take part in this survey. It seeks to measure current trends in church-going and to identify issues which reveal where we need strategies for evangelism and mission. An Information Return in the form of a small slip will be handed to you as you leave Mass this week-end. You will see that the information requested does not identify individuals by name. The hope is that each family / individual will complete the form and return it to Church next weekend. Priests / ministers are being asked to prepare a comprehensive report from the returns which will then be forwarded to Brierley Consultancy who will publish and disseminate the results of the Census
