    • Increased community involvement (Backpack program, ProLife, Faith Formation, & other missionary involvements)
    • Father Melendez donation
    • Roof replacement at 504 E. Main

We purchased 504 East Main (adjacent property) for additional office/classrooms and investment at a cost of $106,000.

We reduced Cash on Hand from $54,000 to $34,000 in accordance with Diocesan guidelines (i.e. 6 weeks of expenses). This covered the roof at 504 E. Main.

In summary, we have done well spiritually as well as financially and the forecast is that we will achieve budget in revenues and expenses, while growing spiritually in our parish and surrounding community. Thank you so very much for your trust and support to our parish work.
