  • What is an "affiliated parishioner"? +

    In accordance to the Archdiocesan guidelines, the three minimal criteria for being an "affiliated parishioner" are as follows:
    1. Family has been registered in the parish for at least 6 months,
    2. Family verifiably contributes on a weekly basis to the financial support of the parish, and
    3. Family attends Holy Mass regularly and is involved in the activities, organizations or programs at the church.

    Our parish follows these guidelines and criteria set forth by the Archdiocese whenever it is necessary to verify parishioner status for the use of our church and our parish center, and to determine “affiliation” for our school families. We always make the determination on a case by case basis. This is the only way to fairly approve the use our facilities or qualify for any discounts that might be given to an “affiliated parishioner”.
