Financial Report Part Two: Last week, Father Thomas reported that we may experience a
$26,000 surplus this year to use on much needed repairs this spring. Our fiscal
year runs from July 1 to June 30. The parish has a debt of $437,000. It is owed
to the diocese at an interest rate of 4.5%. We paid $20,000 in interest last
year. The parish has restricted endowments totaling $408,000. Last year, these
endowments returned $19,800 to the parish to use in specific areas determined
by the original donors (for example, tuition aid to needy students, or
assistance to seminarians of the parish). The endowments had a return of 8.73%,
but 3.73% was re-deposited to help the funds grow. The parish has one significant
savings account for the school building repairs/improvements totaling $127,000.
This money was set aside after the Partners
For the Future campaign was launched years ago. Please watch this bulletin
for further reports on finances and proposed repairs.

the cycle. Presenter: Jim Bisenius.

Help Saint Mary School earn
a few extra dollars and help to save the planet at the same time! The big green

we receive a check (averaging about $90.00) for the paper we have in our bin.
Many GermanVillage residents use our bin and we invite
our parish families to recycle all their household newspapers, junk mail, and
magazines, too. The more paper recycled, the more we earn-- and we’ve saved a
tree or two, as well.
From now until March 31, Abitibi
Recycling is offering a special recycling promotion: If we can increase our
paper recycling by 25%, they will send us a check for $250; if we increase our
recycling by 50%, we’ll receive a check for $500! Please save up your household
paper and drop it in the recycling bin and make sure this bulletin is recycled,
too! No cardboard please.
