Why must we consolidate now? Can’t we wait for the Pandemic to end?
As per Governor Baker, the “Stay at Home Advisory” has been extended to May 4. This extends the number of weeks without a congregation, and the contributions made by parishioners without envelopes and usually only when in attendance. In that amount of time all three parishes will be in grave financial danger. Many of our generous contributors are also affected financially with job loss and job reduction, which will have an impact on their ability to sustain their contribution level.
