During Lent, Catholics will have an opportunity to reflect on their spiritual life using a survey called the Disciple Maker Index (DMI). The survey provides data for pastors, parish councils, and lay ecclesial ministers to help parishioners grow in their faith. The Catholic Leadership Institute will provide survey results during the Easter season, followed by training for parish leaders. The Diocese of Youngstown is one of only 15 dioceses across the country chosen to participate in this multi-year process of reflection and growth.
The following website contains templates for parishes to promote your parish’s DMI survey. Make sure to add the specifics where noted: https://resources.catholicleaders.org/dmi-resources-home/dmi-publicity-templates
A copy of the templates is also available in the February Attachments Folder labeled “DMI”: https://bit.ly/feb2024comm
