Diocesan Communications Survey

The Diocese of NWPA needs your help in assessing the changes we have made in our communications over the past year and getting your input on how to further improve.  The communications survey (found on our website) should take only 5-10 minutes to complete.  For reference you can check out our website at dionwpa.org, our blog at dionwpanews.org, and our Facebook page at facebook.com/dionwpa.
