Letter discusses survey to assess need for Huntertown parish

FORT WAYNE — The Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend is in the process of assessing the need for a new parish in the Huntertown area. If it is determined that there is a need and the associated support, the new parish would be located on the diocesan-owned property that is situated north of Cedar Canyons Road between Highway 3 and Lima Road.

Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades is sending out a letter to all of the Catholic households within a five-mile radius of the property. Within a week following the letter, each of those households will be receiving a survey that is designed to gauge the Catholic community’s level of interest in constructing, attending and supporting a new parish. This survey is being conducted with the administrative assistance of the Indiana Business Research Center at Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business.

If you are the recipient of this letter and survey, please take the time to complete and return it. If you have any questions about this process, please direct them to Msgr. Robert Schulte at 260-422-4611.
