Transparency

Dear Parishioners,

Transparency is one of the goals of our parish financial plan. We want every parishioner to know what our financial position is. This heartbeat outlines the financial position of the parish as of June 30, 2019.

Three factors impacted our normal operating revenue and left us about $40,000 short for the fiscal year. One factor was that we suspended our Heart to Heart fund drive for the year because of the TTT drive. Another thing that impacted our ordinary income was the fact we were well short of our collection goals. The third factor that impacted our income was that we received less bequests. Bequests of the past few years have added to our endowment fund and have helped pay for capital needs.

We are on solid financial footing because we have saved funds as we could, but we would like to see our ordinary income rise over the next year. We must be able to pay our ongoing bills and balance our budget. I thank all those who have been so generous with their time and treasure over the last year. This has led to the success of our capital fund drive and the sacrifices made will help us with the ongoing improvement of our parish plant. Your love for Sacred Heart is apparent to me. We ask God to continue to provide us with the resources we need to spread the Gospel message in our community.

Blessings,
Fr. Mark DeSutter Pastor
