Survey Your Faith

A parish priest is always a natural leader in the church community. But have you ever had a priest make decisions in your parish you didn't agree with? Maybe he changed the long-standing Mass times without consulting anyone. Or maybe he helped break a gridlock decision facing the parish council. A priest's influence, positive or negative, over his parish begs the question: How much power should he have? Take our Reader Survey below and let us know what you think.
