A supporting parish family is one who attends Sunday Mass regularly and makes an effort to support the parish financially.  We recommend a donation of $20 per week in the Sunday collection.  Sunday collection donations help us keep the lights and heat on and pay our staff salaries, among all our other day-to-day expenses.  For families that are not coming to Mass or supporting the parish regularly, we reserve the right to impose an additional $100 fee for PREP.

No family will be denied the opportunity to send their children to religious education for financial reasons.  Please contact us to discuss any financial concerns so we can work with you.

If you are having financial difficulties and are not able to meet the above guidelines, please contact Kelly Meliti.
