PLANNING OUR FUTURE TOGETHER!
We are inviting all current active members of St. Aidan's to complete the Church Assessment Tool (CAT), an on-line instrument that will help the Mission and Visioning Team, the Vestry and the Rector gauge the strength, vitality, and trends in our church. The information gained from this assessment will be valuable in helping the leaders of St. Aidan’s as we make decisions about our future.
