I wish to thank Fr Phil Daley and the Liturgy Committee of St Bernadette's parish, St Boniface, for their encouragement and support for a survey on worship patterns of people who are either married or in a significant relationship with another person.  This survey is an attempt to determine, however inadequately, whether there are significant numbers of people present who are in mixed (where the partners are from different Christian denominations) or interfaith (where the partners are from different faiths) partnerships, or indeed in a partnership with a person of no faith at all.

In particular, it is an attempt to determine to what extent the gift of ecclesial communion might be lived out in the "domestic churches" formed by people in mixed marriages, as well as to discern how best to recognize, call forth, and nurture that gift.

Please do not forward this to people outside St Bernadette's parish.  If the survey proves of value, attempts will be made to broaden it, however for the moment it is important that it reach a limited audience.

When the survey is completed and the results tabulated, the global findings will be shared with the parish priest and the Liturgy Committee, who will be able to distribute it as appropriate.

Thank you in advance for your participation.  If you have any questions or comments about the survey, you are welcome to email me, Ray Temmerman, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
