January 21, 2019

The Loaves and Fishes Management Board appreciates the opportunity to speak with the Vestry and interested SSI parishioners about the future of the Loaves and Fishes program. We understand the Vestry’s decisions regarding minimum financial reserves and acknowledge that issues raised in the Vestry’s latest letter are rooted in a genuine concern and responsibility to protect the church’s resources. We also understand and appreciate that the new financial reserve requirements and consequences were designed with the interests of Loaves and Fishes guests in mind.
