What's Happening at St. John

Dear Friends in Christ,

       As I have shared with you earlier, the Archdiocese of Seattle is planning an Archdiocesan wide Capital Campaign to raise funds to support priest and religious retirement pension funds and medical expenses.  Presently, the archdiocese bills parishes for pension and medical benefits annually per assigned priest to the parish.  Additionally funds are also allocated from the Annual Catholic Appeal for the priests’ pension plans.  To date, the amounts have been adequate to pay benefits, a pay-as-you-go approach.  However, with cost of living inflation, increasing medical costs, priests living longer and the ratio of retirees to active priests increasing, the cost to parishes is going to become increasingly burdensome (prohibitive) if there is not a capital investment to both plans (pension and medical).  Therefore, the archdiocese, through research and consultation via the Steier Group throughout the archdiocese, has come to the conclusion that providing invested capital to both plans through a major capital campaign is the best course of action at this time.  The campaign is named, “Called to Serve as Christ.”  I will have more information regarding our parish goal and the timing of the campaign for St. John later this year (most likely late 2018/early 2019).  However, I wanted to give you a heads up that this is coming down the pike and ask you now to begin prayerfully considering your spiritual and financial support for the success of this campaign when it begins.  Contributing to an investment in priest pension and medical benefit plans today will lessen the financial burden for all of our parishes and will assure that the young men and women ordained and entering religious life today will be taken care of in the future.

Peace+

Fr. Tom

Queridos amigos en Cristo,

        Como he compartido con ustedes anteriormente, la Arquidiócesis de Seattle está planeando una amplia Campaña Capital de la Arquidiócesis para recaudar fondos para apoyar a los sacerdotes y religiosos fondos de pensiones de jubilación y gastos médicos. Actualmente, la archidiócesis factura a las parroquias para las pensiones y beneficios médicos anuales por cada sacerdote asignado a la parroquia. Además, los fondos también se asignan de la Apelación Católica Anual para los planes de pensiones de los sacerdotes. Hasta la fecha, las cantidades han sido adecuadas para pagar los beneficios, un enfoque de reparto “pagar según como nos vaya”. Sin embargo, con la inflación del costo de vida, el aumento de los costos médicos, los sacerdotes que viven más y la proporción de los jubilados a los sacerdotes activos aumentando, el costo para las parroquias va a ser cada vez más pesado (prohibitivo) si no hay una inversión de capital a ambos planes (pensiones y médicos). Por lo tanto, la archidiócesis, a través de la investigación y la consulta a través del Grupo Steier en toda la arquidiócesis, ha llegado a la conclusión de que el suministro de capital invertido a ambos planes a través de una importante campaña de capital es el mejor curso de acción en este momento. La campaña se llama "Llamado a servir como Cristo".  Tendré más información sobre nuestra meta parroquial y el calendario de la campaña para St. John a finales de este año (muy probablemente a fines de 2018 / principios de 2019). Sin embargo, quería darle un aviso de lo que está por venir y ahora les pido que empiecen a considerar en oración su apoyo espiritual y financiero para el éxito de esta campaña cuando se inicie. Contribuir a una inversión para la pensión de los sacerdotes hoy, disminuyera la carga financiera para todas las parroquias, y asegurará que los jóvenes y mujeres ordenados, entrando a la vida religiosa hoy sean atendidos en el futuro.

Paz+ 

Fr. Tom
