Established in 1922, St. Paul's is a medium sized parish located in the Town of Wellesley, a suburb west of Boston. The present population is made up of life-long residents combined with a growing number of young families, as well as representatives from local colleges and schools. The parish facilities include the school, parish hall and rectory.
Important News and Events
Most families should have received a letter announcing this year’s Grand Annual Collection in the mail. Our Grand Annual Collection will be taken up on the weekend of October 25 & 26. Parishioners and friends are free to electronically transmit, drop off or mail contributions at their convenience. St. Paul’s is dependent upon this collection for its operations as it represents about 20% of our operating budget. Some parishes have moved away from them and worked to increase the weekly offertory such that it becomes unnecessary. That is a discussion and a decision for the Finance Council and parish community to consider in the future. For now, this effort enables many who do not regularly contribute through electronic means or weekly envelopes to make a significant contribution to their parish; and it accommodates faithful contributors who wish to supplement their regular offerings.
A brief Financial Report is included in this week's bulletin. A more detailed report was included with the Grand Annual mailing. We incurred a manageable operating deficit for the fiscal year that ended June 30, 2014. A decline in last year’s Grand Annual Collection and few facility repairs (painting, walkways and lot paving) produced the shortfall. All of our facilities are in very good shape. With no anticipated capital or program expansion, and if we hit our optimistic revenue goals, the current fiscal year should produce a balanced budget.
Thank you for ongoing generous support of your parish.
Yours in Christ,
