St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church
KofC Matching Donation for Parish Pandemic Relief
St. Rose Parish is facing a serious financial crisis. The collections last quarter, July 10 - September 30, were down $120,000.00 compared to the same quarter last year. The outlook for the current fiscal year July 1, 2020 to June 202, is a loss of $315,000.00-$350,000.00.
This is the biggest loss in the Church's history and even greater than during the "Great Depression." The Parish has been reducing expenses where ever possible, but it is impossible to offset 50% reduction in income without huge expense cuts.
The Knights of Columbus have decided to take action and set an example for the rest of the Parish. We have already donated $12,500 YTD and we are now making a "matching" donation of $30,000.00 additional dollars. The Knights will match all donations during this "Season of Giving" dollar for dollar. If you give $10 the Knights will make it $20. If you give $100.00 the Knights will make it $200.00.
While this action doesn't solve the whole financial challenge, it is a start. We must all pull together to do what we can to help our church. Many of us haven't been giving because we haven't been able to attend mass due to the pandemic. Perhaps we can mail a check to the Parish for what we would normally have donated this year. Hopefully, those who have been giving will consider increasing their donation. Now would be an excellent time to give since the Knights will match what you donate dollar for dollar. All of us need to support our church and be as generous as possible during this difficult time.
