Raw Data

8:45 Mass:

Community Service/Outreach

18 March

  • Service opportunities for groups targeting the underserved
  • Offer more opportunities for service- form groups to help those in need in our parish and community. CPO? Habitat? Hunger groups?
  • Parish outreach to those in need
  • Provide opportunities to help the community (food donations, clothing, provide transportation for those who need it, provide comfort/companionship to the elderly)
  • Provide food and clothing to the poor
  • Support to senior citizens/widows/widowers- big population at 8:45 mass
  • Keep taking our faith out into the community and around the world- ie St Matia Mulumbe
  • Support our seniors
  • Since we are generally an affluent area of Wake Country, we ought to be focused, as Mother Theresa did, on the “poorest of the poor” and build programs in that regard for Wake, Chatham and even Durham counties

25 March

  • Practice environmental stewardship
  • Social outreach to (for) needy , under privileged

Church Groups/Prayer Groups/Committees

18 March

  • Community based “Bible Studies” and discussion groups
  • Start a Just Faith group
  • Form a Peace & Justice committee to seek opportunities for service
  • Prayer groups that maybe meet once a quarter
  • Small Christian communities
  • Bible study in the evening
  • Increase knowledge of ministries; get new parishioners involved more
  • More volunteers-volunteers meeting society
  • Somehow we need to engage more volunteers. There is such a strong crew of people who lead today, but it’s a small group compared to the larger community. Perhaps more opportunities to lead individual projects vs long term mission leads.

25 March

  • Continue to draw individuals into activities; help with set up, etc.
  • Engage the college kids/young adults in the summer
  • Continue growth and interaction with our youth
  • More parish community activities
  • Encourage engagement of ministry opportunities and volunteer opportunities
  • Continue to offer opportunities for fellowship to entice those who have not committed to our community.  Reach out to those who aren’t involved
  • Continuing to create more opportunities for the community to volunteer and encouraging people to volunteer as well
  • Meeting members one-on-one, each one reach one.  We are a vibrant and loving community with much to look forward to
  • Women’s and Men’s retreats to get to know each other better and to strengthen our faith
  • The activities we take part in to show concern for those in need should not be divisive.  I am glad that the “mercy council” is so named. The term “social justice” which is so often used carries with it, for many people, a connotation of a liberal political agenda.

Social Activities

18 March

  • Women’s Breakfast
  • Gathering for lunch, dinner, day field trips
  • We should have a fish fry
  • Maintain/continue our Fellowship meals
  • Parish picnic at the property or a park like Bond Park
  • More community social activities
  • Potlucks when we have a facility
  • More “senior” activities
  • Have more activities after masses so we can get to know more parishioners
  • Keep thinking of ways to expose those members who tend to always attend 8:45 or 10:30 to each other

  • Pray more together as a community outside of mass in small groups, e.g., couples, moms/dads, seniors, youth

25 March

  • Events outside of church time

Youth Activities

  • Do even more to get our youth involved in volunteering as well as those new to the parish
  • Support our youth

Faith Formation

18 March

  • Adult education classes
  • Do not turn away for faith formation class. Turn away no one!

Mass

18 March

  • Saturday evening mass eventually
  • Record homily and put it online for those who cannot make mass here on Sunday

25 March

  • Saturday evening mass

Church Building

18 March

  • The church (building) must be built sooner rather than later
  • Build a church soon
  • Share near term progress on our church building

25 March

  • Build a church soon
  • Build a new church ASAP – so we can continue to spread God’s message of love through His church – with more services and providing more sacraments and providing for our church members needs
  • Build a church (not a hall as we have been in hall for too long)!

Diversity

18 March

  • Support multicultural diversity
  • Have a mission to better integrate foreign born members into the community

25 March

  • Respect the heritage of the green level area

Other

18 March

  • Emphasize more excitement in the Catholic religion (like some of the other Christian churches do)
  • Group based challenges- maybe something like names A-M vs N-Z
  • Have a parish directory. In a previous parish, a photographer took pictures of parish families. The families could purchase the photos but they were all put in a parish directory.
  • Continue the wonderful communications on Facebook group…and as parishioners we can all do more to “share” these posts with our network
  • Emphasis on hospitality is key

25 March

  • Please no political actions – my last parish lost many parishioners because of this and towing the politically correct line
  • Coming out of mass there is a backup for book collection.  Put it further down
  • Have a prayer book collection on both sides of the aisle coming out of mass.  It is hard to cross over.

10:30 Mass:

Community Service/Outreach

18 March

  • More local service projects.
  • More fundraisers/committee service projects
  • Offer volunteer opportunities to help those in need
  • Community service activities
  • With the community growing so much, find ways/activities/projects to bring people together for a better chance to interact but interactions with a purpose. The snack kit project was great!
  • Have more community service
  • I think we can surely give more to the poor so they can eat/drink and have shelter
  • The involvement of individuals and families in parish activities and outreach is a measure of its strength. As such, let’s find new and creative ways to attract the involvement of parishioners

25 March

  • Provide means for all ages from the youngest to the oldest, to have ownership in the Mother Teresa community, at mass and at other community building and service opportunities
  • Provide lots of opportunities for fellowship community service and smaller group learning opportunities
  • By reaching out to the sick, the needy, the elderly and include everyone

Church Groups/Prayer Groups/Committees

18 March

  • As we get closer to the church edifice, form more guilds
  • Small bible study groups
  • The creation of small groups for prayers, Bible study, etc, similar to “cell groups” in the Protestant churches
  • Support each other through prayer

25 March

  • Small groups for prayer learning/understanding/deepening their faith;  have the small groups with similar ages/ period in life to offer support
  • Encourage parishioners to start small group studies within the week.
  • Encourage couples to start small group “Martial bible studies: to “encourage and support the marital bond”
  • To have a group to strengthen prayer life and be visual and active that families or people in need can reach out to and share this.  ie. Legion of Mary stewardship

Social Activities

18 March

  • More opportunities for socializing so that people can get to know one another better
  • More family activities
  • We have to find a way to have all people participate. If we have people registering when their children need to receive sacraments and not coming back, we cannot be a vibrant community. We can form neighborhood groups that engage all parishioners and meet for worship or service periodically.

Youth Activities

18 March

  • Something to bring back our youth to God and his Church. They need God to help guide them in life. And the world needs good youth examples
  • More kid/teen friendly activities
  • Develop a community that is more inclusive/recognizes high school students, especially Seniors so as they might go off to college, they will feel more connected to the church and their home parish

25 March

  • Activities for kids and early teenagers to share as catholics

Other

18 March

  • Go after the Nones
  • Apologetics
  • If we had small fans on table it might help people enjoy church a little more and may be less expensive and use less energy than running the air conditioning more
  • Keep friendly Parish leaders. Judy’s friendliness is beautiful
  • Build and invite us to help
  • It would be wonderful to have banners/flags/signs on display along the road and entrances during mass times- could be great role for our youth leaders to handle
  • Continue to be inclusive and reach out to the marginal
  • Given the increase in new members in the parish, we need to prepare ourselves for the infrastructure that entails (ie bigger Faith Formation classes) and many other activities

25 March

  • The car magnets are wonderful!  It is refreshing to see them as I drive throughout the week.  Encourage members to check out our FB page – lots of great content.
  • Mention from time to time “What is moral?”  “What are virtues?”; maybe scripture to support

Raw Data

8:45

Small Group/ growth opportunities:

  • Bible study in the evening.
  • Do more “get together” things after mass. I guess speaker on community issues, answering women’s household issues, seniors interests, children’s interests etc.
  • Starting a women’s Grace group.
  • Offer spiritual growth opportunities during the week. Maybe a daily Mass somewhere, penance opps, prayer groups etc.

Community building opportunities:

  • More activities that keep us here after mass.
  • Add fruit or a healthy option to donuts.
  • We need a place for the community to be together -not just on Sundays! I noticed we have many seniors and troubled youths in our community so place like Dorcas would be of some comfort?
  • More coffee Sundays
  • It has been a great experience. The real sense of community, a group of welcoming and caring people is the draw and the bond of Mother Teresa of Cary
  • I am satisfied with my experience.

Church Building Ideas:

  • Build our church – start a countdown clock!
  • Show us possible building timelines.
  • Please give monthly updates on parish status/ building new church
  • Build a Church!
  • When we move to our new space incorporate natural environment. Songs at the end of Mass celebrating our spirit and experience with the church.

Recommendations for changes to the Mass / what they like about Mass:

  • Have new members of the Parish stand. Have Sunday when our new parishioners are welcomed and can meet other members of the Parish.
  • Weekly, would like to see a more solemn prayerful atmosphere place to quiet the mind- a refuge!
  • Music at 8:45 mass needs to be more uplifting songs that make you want to clap and tap your foot add to the enthusiasm for the whole mass.
  • Revamp CLOW children’s programs need to be more interactive
  • Music focused on praising God not “all” about his people. sermons on apologetics!
  • Personally my weekly experience is wonderful but to make it meaningful for all! Encourage more singing! 
  • More acknowledgment of visitors and new parishioners
  • Father Daniel is wonderful I would like different songs more traditional songs
  • Focus more on discussing Mother Theresa, and relate what we do to her life and legacy.  And incorporate more of her imagery at our altar, in the homilies, and in our programming
  • Relate gospel to everyday life and current events
  • Keep Father Daniel with his interesting homilies. Keep David and his wonderful choir. Keep the wonderful Childrens choir. Turn the crucifix on the altar so we can focus on the crucifix.
  • Being in an auditorium the silence is lacking in preparing for mass. Lots of talking is very loud.
  • We have good homilies (thank you Father Dan) which is important.
  • I think more quiet before mass (in the auditorium) so as to recollect ourselves for the Mass would be good (the cafeteria can be used for socializing beforehand). After Mass is a good time to greet friends and visit with each other.
  • Also I’m glad we don’t ask visitors to stand and say where they are from or if anyone has a birthday, anniversary or other occasion. That disrupts the prayerful mindset we should have at the start of Mass.
  • Some people will always leave Mass early but I think as we do , keeping Mass to about one hour is helpful in keeping those people from leaving early. When churches frequently have speakers at the end of Mass people tend to leave early.
  • Continue Father Dan’s homilies
  • To encourage engagement to all who attend Mass and those who do not.
  • Sing the Lord’s Prayer.

Service Opportunities:

  • Have a place to donate clothing or sign up for those in need for the week.
  • I would like to engage in more causes for social justice as a community I would also like group service opportunities not just collecting money and guns but doing work like building a habitat house or serving of preparing food.
  • The involvement of teens and kids in the Catholic faith activities. Provide opportunities for charitable activities. Support immigrant population.

10:30

Small Group/ growth opportunities:

  • Reach out to young adults young families and single parents youth ministries to bring families back to the church
  • I think we start by taking care of our MTCC community: continue small groups, meals for the sick, meals to new mothers, visiting the sick, educate the children, educate the adults (on going bible study) and outreach beyond MTCC will flow from there.

Community building opportunities:

  • Creating opportunities to help each other
  • Having parish members and our gathering space before and after mass has been a great way to learn about the ongoing activities at Mother Teresa mission and it has helped bring a sense of community by really creating a face and spirit for our church.
  • Looking forward to new location but love it here too. Keep up the positive and heartfelt messages that are timely and build us up as a community. Continue to keep politics out of mass and church. This is a great place to worship and grow.
  • Greet your people around you introducing yourself before mass practice new hymns before mass.
  • We need to remember that the church is not a building it is a community. Let’s continue to increase gatherings and community events outside of weekly Sunday times
  • We do a great job already so continue welcoming attitude and experience and reminding people that they are important and welcome their participation.
  • Meeting new people. There are people that I have never met and I have been going to GH for several years. Embrace diversity.
  • In addition to Mass, the opportunities for fellowship (such as donuts and coffee, chili cook off etc.) are very important to strengthen us as a Christian Community.

Church Building Ideas:

  • Kneelers please! blessed sacrament available often! great speakers! beautiful large crucifix! a vibrant teen and young adult program! teen mass?
  • Build the church keep up the fantastic Homilies!
  • Build a real church

Recommendations for changes to the Mass / what they like about Mass:

  • Father Daniel had already made this a wonderful place to apply liturgy to our life experiences.
  • Different songs
  • Father Daniel homilies should be made available on our website they are insightful and I would love to reflect on his words during my week
  • Keep up the good work in the area of the music ministry and work to match key of singing to congregation preferred and capability. Celebrate new and old and not so old hymns and music sources. thanks! good work!
  • Keep father Daniel
  • The music! I love music ministry and powerful Catholic songs during mass I was part of life teen choir STM when it first started and saw the amazing power
  • The ushers role is critically important to greet visitors especially non-Catholics who need guidance to the experience at the mass.
  • More contemporary songs like a life teen mass.
  • I love the mass ,the music, the sense of community, my only desire is for the exit to be a little less congested if we could find a way to utilize the second exit or have two lanes to the cafeteria area.
  • Music ministry feeds the heart and cannot lift the spirits of all it can also be used as a tool to send us fourth to be instruments of his well I would suggest that we evaluate alternative and contemporary music and that process I suggest attending one of the other churches to see what they are doing maybe a teen or youth mass.
  • Don’t seat people during the readings and saw them this is disrespectful to the reader Cantor disturbing to the assembly and most important disrespectful to the word of God.
  • We need to do something to create a reputation “mtm is known for x.”
  • At the time of request for prayer and intentions during Mass. Offer an opportunity for parishioners in congregation to say a short intention.
  • We have always had a beautiful celebration of Mass because of the high level of involvement of our members in the community as a whole. This needs to continue and be encouraged and increased. The Mass is the core from which all flows.
  • Thank you Father Dan for already making our experience more meaningful. With your deep sermons and explanations and significance of the Bible Passages. You put a lot of thought and effort in it. Thanks.

Service Opportunities:

  • As we go forth from mass immediately following mass provide an opportunity for from humble service is modeled after mother Theresa and Jesus like preparing food for the poor or cleaning up after our community.
  • In addition to Mass, the opportunities for fellowship (such as donuts and coffee, chili cook off etc.) are very important to strengthen us as a Christian Community.

8:45AM

  • To be a beacon of love and hope for ALL who come to us.  To worship with spirit & JOY. To take what we’ve received and bring it to the wider community-to bring Peace & Justice.  To do ALL things with GREAT LOVE.

  • Spread the word of the Lord and His Mercy.  Carry out the works of Mother Theresa and look at her as an example of how to live our lives.

  • To preach the gospel always.  Not to do great things, but to do many small things with great love.

10:30AM

  • To share our experience of Christ with others.  To be examples to society. And to positively affect our larger community by working to remove those social structures that minimize people and their ability to participate in society.

  • To share our gifts and talents with the less fortunate in our communities through community service projects.

  • Create opportunities for people to strengthen their faith, have meaningful prayer services, comfort the afflicted, help each other to know Jesus better and grow in ministering to the poor.
