What is the St. Ignatius Historic Trust Fund? You hear the collection announced the first Sunday of every month. Have you ever wondered what that is and what the funds are used for? This is a separate tax-exempt corporation set up by the parish to collect funds for the maintenance and upgrade of our facilities. These properties are needed to support and make possible the various activities of the parish. For example, when the church needs repairs, from plumbing to roofing, the Fund pays. The current rebuilding of our historic organ is being funded through the Trust Fund. When any repairs are needed on any of our many buildings, e.g. the parish offices, the rectory, the Francis Xavier House, the Jesuit Apostolic Center at 801 St. Paul Street, the Fund pays. A listing of all of the expenses for repairs was contained in the annual financial report letter sent to all parishioners. The funds contributed to the Historic Trust Fund, because it is a corporation legally separated from the parish corporation, are not subject to any outside claims. So when you hear the announcement on the first Sunday of the month of the second collection for the Historic Trust Fund for the upkeep of our facilities, you will know what the funds are for. Thank you for your generosity.
