Latest News and Information

An urgent message from Fr. Don:

I have been speaking at all the Masses to tell the parish that our Sunday collections are down significantly this fiscal year. For July, August, and September, we have been down $4000 each month. If this pace remains the same, we will be down $48,000 this year on collections alone. We are assuming the reason for this decrease in our collections is that situations in some of our neighboring parishes have changed, and people are returning to their home parishes. Added to this situation, we know that our electric rate, which we are locked into, has been increased $1000 per month over what we have budgeted.This is another $12,000 that we will be short.

To stop the 'bleeding', I have asked you to consider giving an additional dollar or two in your weekly donation. I promise to tighten our belts on spending. Our needs will be met, and our wants will be put on hold. I have already put a hold on our, "Planning for the Future."  We don't know what the rest of this fiscal year will bring, but we will meet the challenges prudently and responsibly. We will work together, and with GOD'S HELP, we will continue to enjoy our GREAT PARISH.
                                            In Christ,
                                            Fr. Don
