The Data

A great deal of information was considered by the Parish Listening Task Force in making its recommendations for the Preliminary Plan for Parish Restructuring. Many criteria are listed in the PowerPoint also accessible through this website. The Comparison of Mass Attendance to Registered Households offers a parish-by-parish look at numbers that will be useful to parishioners interested in the plan.
