Have you recently joined or rejoined St. Matt’s?
I ask because we’re having our first post-pandemic Welcome Dinner on Tuesday, July 26. We’ve mailed out invitations to new and returning members, based on available information in our parish database.
It’s possible we missed people. If you’re new or have returned to St. Matt’s in the last 15 months or so—and you didn’t receive an invitation in the mail—please call the parish office at 651-224-9793. Let Angela know, so she can update our records—and let her know if you want to come to the July 26 dinner. And welcome!
Parish Finance Update
At our June 30 Finance Council meeting, we reviewed the monthly financial report, from May. As usual, your regular generosity has kept us in the black. (Thank you!) We continue to pay all our bills on time, including the mortgage for the school building elevator and boiler.
Put another way, we’re in good shape when it comes to funding our regular operations.
The challenges we face these days have a lot to do with capital needs: the leaking roofs in the Parish Center and potentially the school; some electrical work; and a proposed security system.
Our Facilities Committee members and I have been seeking bids on all these capital items, so we can develop a capital improvement plan (and budget) as well as a regular operations budget. I expect to have more to report soon.
Let me know if you have any questions. Have a great week!
