Dear St. Paul Parish and School Community,
In our 99th year of educating students, there is much excitement surrounding the planning of the 100th Birthday of St. Paul School, to be celebrated during the 2024-25 school year. With many events planned for the birthday celebration, this is a great time to visit the Parish’s mission to support the education of our young people.
There is a wide gap between the cost of educating a student and the amount of tuition money collected per student. Each year, the parish supports the mission of Catholic education by closing that gap of what is financially needed to educate each student. As the tuition is established for each family annually, there is also an awareness of what the parish must raise to support the salaries of the school staff and the operational costs of running a school. Please see the chart below that shows actual tuition collected per family and the amount the Parish subsidizes to make Catholic education a reality for our students.
With the COVID grants coming to an end during this school year, and the rising costs of utilities, staff salaries and health costs, we are focusing our Day of Giving Efforts this year to help close the gap of what it costs to educate a student at St. Paul School. All funds collected during this Day of Giving will be deposited to the General Operational Budget to strengthen the St. Paul Community – a community of faith where the Parish and School work together to provide a Catholic education to our youth.
Thank you for your consideration in donating to St. Paul Parish during the November 14, 2023 Day of Giving Campaign.
