Step 3. Invite parishioners to register, select what parish groups they belong to, then take the CDP.
Resource 9: Inviting parishioners to take the CDP on the second Registration Sunday
Like last Sunday, place the CDP registration flyers in the pews and replenish them before all the Masses as needed.
Pulpit announcement at all the Masses
Today is our second and final Catholic Discipleship Profile Registration Sunday. During this past week we had XXX parishioners register to take the CDP. This number is very encouraging, and we thank those who signed up. We want everyone in our parish to take the CDP to discover how God is working in your life. We want all parishioners to sign up because we need your input to be part of our CDP parish profile report that we will use for pastoral planning.
You will find in your pews a CDP registration flyer. Those at the end of the pews, please pass them down. I invite each person who has not registered to take one. If you do not have a flyer, please raise your hand and an usher will give you one. The registration process is simple. When you get home use your smartphone QR code reader to take you to our online registration page. Or you can go to our parish website (name of website), scroll down on the homepage, and click on Take the Catholic Discipleship Profile. Follow the prompts and register.
You can complete the survey in 15 minutes, and you will receive your individual profile report immediately. You can read your report online or print it as a PDF. Your report is totally personal and private—no one sees your report unless you share it. Please register and take the CDP this week. More CDP registration flyers are in the vestibule.
I now invite (name of parishioner) to share with you briefly why registering and taking the CDP was a valuable experience for her/him. (The person gives a short witness talk and invites the parishioners to take a registration flyer and complete the CDP this week.)
After all the Masses
Ask your ushers/greeters to be near all the church exits and hand the registration flyer to people who did not take one during the pulpit announcements.
Have members of the CDP team and others available at all the Masses to answer people’s questions. Create some kind of sign that reads: Questions about the CDP? Ask Me!
Special thanks to the XXX (number) parishioners who registered to take the CDP during this past week. Since we want all our parishioners to participate, today is our second Catholic Discipleship Profile Registration Sunday. If you have not done so already, please register by going to our website, (name of website) and look for the CDP on the homepage (or name the location). It takes about 15 minutes to complete the survey and you will receive your individual profile report immediately. You can read your report online or print it as a PDF. Your report is totally personal and private—no one sees your report unless you share it. Please register and take the CDP this week to discover how God is working in your life.
The CDP Administrator can contact Paulist Evangelization Ministries if there are questions about the CDP.
