Sunday collections keep the parish operating. The greater portion is allocated to salaries, programs that help people grow in their faith, as well as the utilities and maintenance required for our buildings.
Building Fund: We have an outstanding balance on the loan taken out to complete our Multi-purpose Building; the amount of $1.35 million. Any donations to this fund go to decrease this debt and point us to the building of a spiritual growth center. For a donation of $1 million, the donor or donors get to name either the Multi-purpose Building or the yet to be constructed spiritual growth center.
Pastor’s Discretion: various needs become apparent from time to time. These funds provide the money needed to do projects that were not otherwise budgeted for.
