NOTE FROM FR. IVAN
I wanted to let you know that we recently received our July 31st rebate from the Diocese for our parish’s share from the Upon This Rock Campaign. We received $4,029.83. You will probably note that the amount of our rebate continues to decrease, but that is due to the fact that the original campaign ended and most of the pledges have been paid in full. Due to COVID, some donors have requested to have their payment plans extended. As payments are still being made, for some time we will continue to receive rebates until all pledges are paid in full.
All of the rebates we received are kept in a Deferred Maintenance Fund to help with our capital projects. It is a good feeling to know that we can continue to maintain our buildings without draining our parish savings.
At this point in time, we are currently getting estimates and looking into the possibility of improving the lighting and sound system at St. Joseph’s Church. In addition, we to be sure our Bell Tower at this site continues to be stable. Also, we are checking into additional repair work for the front steps at St. Mary’s Church.
Again, I humbly thank all of our parishioners who came forward, sacrificed, and made very generous pledges to Upon This Rock. I thank each of you for continuing to honor your pledges so we were able to receive this $4,029.83. As a reminder, Upon This Rock payments are to be made to the Foundation of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Buffalo, NOT The Diocese of Buffalo.
May God continue to bless each of you for your generosity and I pray all will continue to remain healthy.
