Your parish’s Building & Equipment Maintenance Committee has committed to provide periodic updates to the parishioners on significant repairs, improvements and other major facilities-related expenses.
This report covers the first two quarters of fiscal year 2017 (i.e., July – Dec 2016). In the future we plan to provide a report quarterly.
St. Thomas Aquinas Parish owns 11 buildings, most of which are more than 50 years old. Tight parish budgets have caused some maintenance to be deferred until it became urgent. The main water line at the OLR site failed last summer necessitating an expensive emergency repair. Significant heating system repairs were also required this winter at both the OLR and STA sites.
Although repairs are a significant portion of our annual plant expenses, salaries and benefits for our maintenance employees, insurance on the buildings and utilities are all major recurring costs. The information included here summarizes the major repairs and expenses for the buildings of our parish.
