Our last report to parishioners was in December of 2016. There have been no new projects undertaken since that time. The information below shows an update of the financials and recap of completed projects.

Mary, Mother of Hope continues to repay their deposit account for the money withdrawn to pay for repairs to the Church roof due to leaks and interior damage which will use all past and future pledge payments. As we receive new pledge payments, money is transferred to savings to replace the roof payment withdrawal.
                  Total pledged - $510,260                            Projected Parish’s share - $188,796.

St. Joseph the Worker campaign funds are being used to repay the loan made when the roof was replaced. As future pledges money is received, it will be transferred to reduce the loan balance.
                 Total pledged - $310,345                              Projected Parish’s share - $114,827.

St. Vincent de Paul’s campaign funds were used to replace the church pews and to inspect the roofs on parish buildings. The next project will be roof replacements since they have exceeded life expectancy and deterioration is setting in. No date has been decided for this work. The pledge balance is $56,240. This and all future pledge dollars received will be earmarked for new roofs.
                Total pledged - $480,435                               Projected Parish’s share - $177,761.

St. Vitus campaign fund’s major project was a new lighting system for the church. There is a pledge balance of $161,817 in the account for the next project planned, which is the renovation of the school/parish kitchen. No date has been decided for this work.
               Total pledge - $1,355,277                               Projected Parish’s share - $501,452.

In addition to the projects listed above, Our Campaign for the Church Alive funds have been used to help underwrite evangelization and adult education in our faith community. We have had renowned speakers, faith- based programs, and on-going adult bible studies for our parishioners.
