A. REDUCED RATE: St. Patrick's Church is a tithing community
whose members are expected to support the Church by practicing responsible stewardship of
their time, treasure, and talent. One component of that support is REGULAR (not less
than monthly) monetary contributions using the church envelope system. To qualify
for the reduced tuition benefit afforded St. Patrick's parishioners, a registered family
is expected to attend weekly Mass at St. Patrick's and contribute a weekly offering of at
least $10 (or $40 monthly) for the six months prior to school registration (3/6/00).
Contributions cannot be paid in a lump sum and cannot be paid retroactively in
order to qualify for the reduced rate. A family's tuition rate will be determined by
the Parish office at school registration time and will not change during the year unless a
family loses their reduced tuition status. Those qualifying for the reduced rate
will have their status reviewed quarterly.
