Parish and Agency Resource Fund (PARF)

The Parish and Agency Resource Fund (formerly the Deposit and Loan Fund) was established to maximize the financial resources and needs of the parishes and agencies within the Diocese. Acting as a conduit, the fund provides an alternative for short-term investing while providing a ready source of funds for parishes for short and intermediate term projects. Both the returns offered to investors and the borrowing rate charged on loans are usually superior to the current rates offered by outside financial institutions.

Please contact the Finance Office with any of your needs or questions regarding the Parish and Agency Resource Fund.
