As we enter more deeply into summer, there is a natural reduction in activity in and usage of our parish facilities.  This presents us with an opportunity to repair and clean our facilities.  You have probably noticed some of the cleaning activity in the past week or two.  The intensity of the cleaning is going to increase such that we will need to close the school, gym, Parish Hall, and Annex during the first two weeks of July so that our cleaning company can clean and wax all the floors and clean the carpet in the Parish Hall.

As you may know, just before Christmas break Congress passed revisions to the federal tax code. These revisions will allow Catholic K-12 school parents to set up tax-deductible savings accounts to pay for their children's school tuition. Money a parent deposits in one of these savings accounts is tax-deductible. For example, if a parent deposits $5,000 in an account, their taxable income is reduced by $5,000. Reducing taxable income reduces the parent's tax liability. In the $5,000 example, a taxpayer could potentially pay $300 less in taxes, though other factors come into play in preparing one's taxes. &nbs...
