The expense for the year 2013 was $238,767.00 which means that we are in the black to the tune of $20,370.80. Our budget for 2014 is 124,330.97 Dollars. If each family were to increase their offering by $5 a week this would help a great deal. Priority 3: Finance
Capital Campaign. We collected $26,746.06 through the Building offertory collection. Our expenses for repairs is $24,499.80 in the past year on repairs to the family centre, church.

In other words, we are looking at a bill of up to $800,000.00 to complete all the projects. The Building fund will be funded by the Capital Campaign,
In other words, we are looking at a bill of up to $800,000.00 to complete all the projects. If we break it down over three years and break it down even further $270,00.00 a year. Now divide it by the number of families in the parish for example 200 families this would cost them $1,350.00 a year. Over 12 months this would be a cost of $80 dollars a month or $20.00 a week. By the end of April 2014 we should have a clear way to proceed with this. Capital Campaign
