Church Membership Assessment

The Treasurer now sends the Fair share to the Diocese for the third quarter to the Diocese.
F.Y.I. Pres. Barbara Driscoll
I’m sure we are all feeling the rising prices, inflation and other issues.
Our Church which is very important to all of us is feeling it too.
This summer the Church building had major problems that needed to be attended to. The cost of the replacements or repairs was great.
The Air conditioner condenser was replaced and other work on the system had to be done. Electrical work had to be done regarding the furnaces and thermostats. Also the vents throughout this church building had to be cleaned out.
A new Church sign was needed because the original one was destroyed during a bad tornado type storm.
You cannot cover the expenses of the Church without having Fundraisers throughout the year which definitely requires the help of all our parishioners and those people who come regularly to Church and still have not become official parishioners.
Basically to keep the Church running, approximately $6,500 is needed in offerings and/ or donations monthly. This does not include heating oil in winter, insurances on the Church, and Diocesan Fair Share.
If you have any ideas for fundraising or have special abilities, please speak to any of our Council members.
May God Bless You All!
