From Fr. David’s Desk
Dear Friends in Christ,
Next weekend I will be giving my annual financial update talk at all the Masses. The “Sermon on the Amount”, as I affectionately like to call it! It always seems to tie in well with the autumn harvest, as well as with many of the stewardship themed scriptures that we hear during the fall season of Ordinary Time. I do hope that you will all be able to make it to church next weekend to hear this critical presentation. I will simply say here that this is something we ALL need to hear and ALL need to be engaged with together as a parish family.
In preparation for this talk, and in a continued effort to be fully transparent regarding parish finances, the office staff has kindly printed out and included in this bulletin our Annual Financial Report from last fiscal year (July 2017-June 2018) and our budget for the current fiscal year (July 2018-June 2019). Only the bottom line for each category is listed, which should be enough for our general purposes here. If you have any questions about the report, please contact our Business Manager in the Parish Office; she will be happy to answer any questions you may have on any of this.
Sincerely in Christ,
