2017 Annual Catholic Appeal: 

The latest Archdiocesan report shows we are $1,780 short in making our goal of $131,859. Any shortfall, the parish must make up the difference. We have until the middle of April to complete our pledges.
For those who have yet to complete your pledge, please do so, thank you! 

New Accounting Manual: 

The archdiocese revised its accounting manual. The manual was revised to reflect current operational realities. One change: it is now optional to show depreciation because the
diocese looks at the “Profit and Loss Report” and most capital projects are funded by special capital campaigns. 

2018-2019 Parish Operating Budget: 

In predicting Sunday giving, the Finance Council did wonder how the new tax law would affect charitable giving because of the doubling of the standard deductions. Fewer people will itemize because of this new standard deductions. 

Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) 

is another option for charitable giving. As provided by Archdiocesan Planned Giving Office, the RMD criteria: (1) Donor must be age 70 ½ or older; 2) Donor may transfer up to $100,000 directly from IRA to qualified charity; 3) Gift may be made at one-time, or
multiple times within a single year (as long as total does not exceed $100,000); 4) Gift may satisfy all or part of required minimum distribution (RMD); 5) Gift may be made at any
time, there is no expiration date. 

Sunday contributions using online giving 
When we do our weekly report on the Sunday gifts, it includes all mail-in bank checks, credit cards and EFT that the parish processes every 12th and 21st of the month, and online giving. Anyone can sign up for online giving by going here. You just need your parish (envelope) ID number to set up an account that you manage. Thank you to all for your stewardship of Treasure.
