Year End Parish Financial Reports

Fr. Peter Muhich

Included as an insert in this bulletin is our Year End Parish Financial Report for the fiscal year that ended June 30th (our fiscal year runs July 1-June 30) also available here.  This is a brief summary:

CATHEDRAL: the Cathedral’s report shows another year of deficit spending to the tune of $31,505.13.  Part of this deficit had to do with the transition of the school to Stella Maris Academy, but there were other factors involved as well.  We ran a deficit the prior fiscal year as well and are currently running a $15,000 deficit in our new fiscal year.  Some of our good givers have retired and moved or passed on to the other side of life.  Be assured that the Finance Council and I have cut expenses where we can. 

So, I ask you to join me in increasing your parish support by 10% to help your parish continue to meet the important needs of educating our children, providing much needed programs for our youth, reaching out to the poor in our community, and so much more.

ST. MARY STAR OF THE SEA: St. Mary Star of the Sea’s report shows a surplus of $24,043.00,revenue over expenses which is good news.  However, that surplus depends on some very generous volunteers who clean the church and social hall each week.  If we had to hire that work out our bottom line would look significantly different.  So, I ask you to continue to be generous in supporting your parish.
