Dear friends and colleagues,

I along with Drs. Tricia Bruce and Stephen Cherry are conducting a national survey of Asian Pacific Islander Catholics. May we ask for your help in disseminating this survey announcement to any and all individuals you may know for whom this applies?

The survey team has constructed invitations in 13 Asian-specific languages which I attach here (all with direct links to the survey). I also attach a copy of the endorsement letter from Bishop Calvo which can also be found on this site:

If you prefer, you can use the main announcement below and cut and paste in an email. Thank you for any help you are willing to extend. Hope all is well this season.

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Cultural Diversity in the Church is conducting a national study to better understand and minister to Asian and Pacific Island (API) communities. API Catholics currently number nearly 4 million, or about twenty percent of all API Americans. This is a diverse and important presence in the Church today.

Are you an Asian or Pacific Island Catholic?

Do you work in ministry to/with Asian and Pacific Island Catholics?

If you can answer yes to one or both questions, your input is needed!

We invite you to complete this BRIEF (15 minute) QUESTIONNAIRE about your experiences:
