Father Damian's Update on the State of the Parish
The Family of St. Catharine-St. Margaret Parish:
Attached, please find the recording of Father Damian's State of the Parish update that was given on Saturday, October 10th at our 4pm Mass at St. Margaret Church and was also delivered on Sunday, October 11th at our 10:30am outdoor service at Saint Catharine School (SCS).
Father Damian's update covers a number of important issues including our parish financial situation (our 2 Churches, SCS, and our Cemeteries/Mausoleums), restructuring initiatives taken to reduce non-essential spending, investments in technology at both of our Churches to improve the Live-streaming experience for our parishioners, the successful reopening of SCS, the important role that bequests and our online parish collection platforms (Parish Giving, Venmo, and Zelle) can have in our ability to provide ongoing support for our parish ministries, potential changes in our Mass schedule as we move forward, and the challenges we face in our "in-person" parish activities and ministries due to the social distancing protocols that are likely to remain in place for the foreseeable future.
Please refer to the parish website for Father Damian's letter to the parish community and for the Consolidated Parish Financial Statements for FY 2019-2020 and FY 2018-2019.
