Pastoral Evaluation

Dear Ministry Leaders,Ministry Members and Fellow Parishioners,

St. Joseph Parish is served by Father Sam Loterte and Father Clifford Barrios of the Blessed Sacrament Congregation. The St. Joseph Parish Pastoral Advisory Council has been requested by the Blessed Sacrament Congregation to ask the parishioners to evaluate the performance of the pastor and associate pastor. Attached to this letter is an evaluation that we are asking all ministry leaders, ministry members and parishioners. This evaluation focuses on the pastoral performance of the Blessed Sacrament Congregation, and aims to evaluate the performance based on previously established parish goals. This evaluation is requested by the Provincial of the Blessed Sacrament Congregation. Please return this to the parish rectory office no later than July 31, 2014.

Please evaluate the Priests of the Blessed Sacrament Congregation in the following categories, marking the appropriate level of performance, based on the requirements of the job, the pastor and associate pastor:

• Exceeds Expectations: Performs most duties in a superior manner. Takes on many assignments using their own initiative and contributes more than is expected of the position.

• Meets Expectations: Performs assigned duties in an acceptable manner and meets requirements of the position.

• Needs Improvement: Performs duties at a less than acceptable level, needs improvement.

The evaluations are based on the school’s Vision and Mission for the performance year being evaluated.


The Mission of St. Joseph Church: Centered on the Word of God and the Eucharist we gather as a community of disciples of Jesus Christ as we seek fullness of life. Blessed with many cultures and gifted with the Hawaiian spirit of aloha we pledge to share our heritage and o ur faith, and commit ourselves to the full development of our people. With Saint Joseph as our patron we offer our gift of self for the greater glory of God.

Provide comments concerning the performance and provide specifics wherever possible. Highlight areas of exceptional effort, those that needs improvement and/or changes, any particular focus areas for the upcoming year. If you need to use a separate sheet of paper you may do so, however, please include the TITLE of the section you are commenting on.

Please complete this evaluation with prayer.
