Holy Innocents

St. Barnabas

From the Desk of Fr. John

As you know the charter school at Holy Innocents closed this past summer. Global Preparatory Academy went into receivership. The closing of the school means a significant loss of about $140,0000.00 a year from our budget.

In the past two months, members of our Parish Pastoral Council and Finance Council have been meeting with representatives from the Archdiocese via Zoom meetings to look at a way forward for our parish in light of the loss of income. We have been studying the overall parish income and expenses from the past five years. We have also had a building assessment completed by an engineering firm to look at the HVAC, boiler, roof, parking lot, walls, etc of both campuses. Discussions of how the buildings are used and the needs of the parish have also been taking place.

The Director of Properties for the Archdiocese of Detroit explained the unlikelieness of finding another tentant in the short time during the Covid pandemic. We must replace the level of funding we had from Global Preparatory Academy. There is a concern for us to have enough income to meet our expenses. All options are being discussed at this time.

During the next several months I will share with you more information as we get it. A Town Hall meeting will be scheduled for the end of April to discuss further developments. We ask that if you had specific questions you email the paish. We will have question boxes in each of the parish sites for you to write down your questions as well.

As a parish family it is important that we keep one another in prayer, as well as this process that we are going through.

God bless you,

Fr. John
