Holy Redeemer Parish Planning Study

Holy Redeemer has been conducting a Parish-wide Planning Study to formulate a strategy for addressing some needed improvements to our parish facilities. Both St. Ann’s Church and the Church of the Nativity have a number of deferred maintenance issues and other possible projects that need our attention.

Careful consideration and thoughtful planning is required for us to move forward. Input from our parishioners is of the utmost importance at this time. Your opinions and suggestions will enable us to formulate a final plan that will help meet the needs of our entire parish.

Every registered household has already been mailed a  questionnaire so this study would include your valued input. The survey form is strictly confidential and no names will be attributed to any direct or indirect quotes. Please complete and return the questionnaire within 10 days.

You may either:

  • mail it to Holy Redeemer Parish, 4 Green Street, Merrimac, 01860
  • place it in the collection at Mass
  • drop it off at the parish office in Merrimac
  • you can complete the survey online by clicking on the link below

Please make every effort to participate in the survey process so that we may complete this study with your open and honest input.

Thank you for your continued support.
