Catholic In-Parish status is defined as a family who is registered in St. Simon Parish, embraces Stewardship by being active in the life of the parish, and participates in Mass as evidenced by contributions to the parish using offertory envelopes. Annual tax-deductible financial contributions should take into consideration and reflect at least the difference between the In-Parish and Out of Parish tuition rates, which is approximately $2,000 per child.
