(Note: $14,000 of this held in CDs) 

We are holding steady at about 20 people at every mass. 

Thanks to the generosity of so many people at our anniversary party in June, we netted over $3500. Excluding the income from the anniversary party, our weekly collections year to date are averaging about $225 each week. On average, we spend over $250 each week, but our actual expenses would be significantly higher except for the donation of time by several of our presides and musicians. 

In view of the extraordinary human disasters in 2010, the Board authorized special collections and authorized payments from The Belle Fund in the amount of $1025 to ICOH to help their Haiti Disaster Relief program and $1075 to the Sisters of Loretto to assist the victims of the flooding in Pakistan. We also donated $500 to New Ways Ministry in view of their special needs this year, $250 to Dignity USA at their Fall fundraiser, $200 to the Northern Virginia AIDS Ministry, $100 to the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network, and $50 each in two memorial donations. 

Our community could not continue without the countless hours of time freely contributed by our members. Just as volunteering is a personal decision, so is financial support for our community based on each person’s financial circumstances. Some will be able to give more and others less. On average, if each of the 15 to 20 people attending mass could contribute $15 to $20 per week, we would be able to cover our expenses and not deplete our resources. May God continue to bless us and all who continue to support our community with your contributions of time and talent and treasure.
