In November I reported that for the first time in recent memory the parish was operating in the black. In spite of the wintry weather in January, the difficulty many people had in getting to church, we remain in reasonably good fiscal shape. See the financial summary below showing that we are nearly $18,000 in the black.
But before you get too excited, just know that our severe winter weather has exposed many vulnerabilities in our plant, from multiple roof leaks to boiler trouble to church furnace repair. Our bills for these repairs are coming due now. So, in reality, we are about $10,000 to the good.
Still, not bad, eh! I am grateful to the staff for their fiscal responsibility, and I am truly grateful to YOU for your TREMENDOUS GENEROSITY.
