As always, you have been very supportive of your parish, even through difficult times, and we are very grateful. The Sunday and ordinary donations to date are showing a moderate increase over last year which is encouraging.
As you know, there has been no fundraising events this year. Our volunteers needed a break from last fall’s bazar, and it is understandable. A lot of effort is required of everyone to undertake such events. We hope circumstances will permit us to have it again next spring.
However, the expenses are not taking a break. We are now free of municipal taxes as the church, being a religious establishment, is exempt. Our only charge was Carman Personal Care Home for $68.91.
The sale of the rectory will also reduce the insurance bill somewhat. This year’s invoice hasn’t been received yet but should be in the range of $6000.00. The insurance year of coverage is October 1st to September 30th.
Therefore, we are appealing to our parishioners again this year for donations to help meet this expense. Your donations are non-taxable to the diocese, which means that all the money received stays in the parish and a tax receipt is issued at the end of the year.
Please make your donation payable to “St. Denis Parish” and mark on your envelope “Insurance Donation” and write your envelope number on the envelope or use the blue envelope provided. Please include your name and address if you do not have an envelope number. Deposit your donation in the Sunday collection basket between now and the end of the year or hand it in to one of the trustees or to Father Peter.
Peace and blessings in Christ,
The Trustees of St. Denis
Roman Catholic Parish of the Archdiocese of St.Boniface
