Thank You, Borromeo Parish
St. Charles Borromeo has received a check for $87,000+ from our generous parishoners. This check represents 40% of our donations to the Roman Catholic Foundation of Eastern Missouri's Beyond Sunday campaign.
These first proceeds will be used to cover the expenses of establishing our new and wonderful (and full!) preschool. Our very loving and generous Borromeo family has pledged over $650,000 over five years. Forty percent will continue to go directly to our parish and school needs.
Another need that was covered with these proceeds was the leasing of new copy machines for the day school, parish school of religion, and church office. These machines were much needed, given that the school uses 30,000 copies a month.
