The assessments were demr- mined by means of a new for- mula which is based on the number of contributors. In Previous years, assessments Were based on parish income. The new formula, which.waSi_of established by the Councl Priests and approved by Bishop Francis R. Shoo, uses the number of contributors who an- nually give at least $,50 to the Parish. The total amount of money aSSessed is $1,550,000, presenting an increase of 5,000 or 2,3 percent over last Year's goal, according to Justin Clements, diocesan develop- ment director. He said the in- crease is attributed "to a $40,000 cushion in,the budget for assessment relief -- in case the new formula causes an Unanticipated hardship. Parish goals vary significant- ly from last year, because of the new assessments. Goals for the 1989 campaign and comparison figures from 1988 are printed at right. Buehlers I.G.A.
