The Arlington Diocese automatically assesses each parish $24 on a portion of their registered families. This year the amount for St. Veronica is $11,808. The parish pays this amount regardless of the number of families that actually subscribe to or receive the print edition of the Herald. The assessment not only covers the print edition, but also defrays the cost of salaries of the newspaper’s employees, the maintenance of the online edition, and other related costs of running a newspaper. We hope that you will consider assisting us in meeting the parish’s assessment.
