Eastern Nevada Catholic Parish Corporation
During the year 2010 the Diocese of Reno began the process of setting up corporations for all the Parishes in the Diocese. Some of these
corporations included more than one Parish, as is the case with Eastern Nevada Catholic Parish Corporation, a Nevada nonprofit Corporation,
which includes St. Joseph's Parish in Elko, Nevada, Sacred Heart Parish in Carlin, Nevada, St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Parish in Wells, Nevada,
St. Brendan's Catholic Parish in Eureka, Nevada and Our Lady of Guadalupe Mission in Jackpot, Nevada. This was mainly done to protect the
Parishes and their assets from any lawsuits filed against the Diocese. All real and personal property of these parishes was transferred to the
corporation they fall under, but is still held in trust by the Diocese. The corporations were set up in such a way as for the Diocese to still
retain control over each of these corporations.
Board members were selected for Eastern Nevada Catholic Parish Corporation in the Fall of 2010 so that proper filings could be made with the Nevada Secretary of State. An organizational meeting with the Board of Directors was then held on March 23, 2011, during which Bylaws were adopted, Officers were appointed, Fiscal Year date was designated, approval of current parish budgets and many other issues that were discussed and approved. On October 15, 2011, the Board of Directors held its first Annual Meeting, which is required each year.
