“Annual Reports and Annual Opportunities!” First Annual Reports: This week you will find inserted into all our bulletins our Annual Parish Financial Report for 2017-18. Please check them both St. Peter and St. Paul out as both are in each bulletin. Our fiscal year ended this past June 30th and each year in August we are required to submit to our Diocese of St. Cloud the results of our parish finances. We are also required to make public these numbers to our parish members at large. After all, you as active members of St. Peter and St. Paul are the ones who contribute to our parish financial support, so it only makes sense that you know exactly where our money is coming from and how it i
