Collection Amount in the Sunday Bulletin

Post date: Jul 17, 2012 3:41:22 PM

You may have noticed in last week's bulletin the amount

collected the prior Sunday. This will now be the case in

every Sunday bulletin, allowing all our parishioners to know

what is the giving pattern of our parish family. We have

nearly finished the new Projected Budget of 2012-2013. The

projected Sunday amount in the box is what is needed to

support our budget and will always be printed, and then we

will print the actual amount that was received. This will allow

all to see how well we did, or if we are short, in maintaining

and supporting our parish. A full budget will be soon

completed and published for all to see what we hope to raise

in the coming year, and what expenses we anticipate. We

have no budget from prior years, so have little to go on, but

we will publish a profit and loss report of the last fiscal year

that closed on June 30, 2012. This report will allow all to see

what was raised and spent in these past 12 months. I

continue to thank God for the sacrifices many of you make to

support your parish, and challenge others to consider their

giving patterns. Together, we can grow and meet the

challenges that will come our way this year.
