John Hisel of the Parish Finance Council presented the state of St. Malachi Parish’s finances at our recent Annual Meeting. In short, our finances are challenged: collections are down, which has resulted in a multi-year operating deficit, which has been funded by depleting our investments. Since this situation is not sustainable for the long term, a Task Force has been formed. Please review the full details of John Hisel’s presentation here: Parish Finances Report 07-2016,
All parishioners are encouraged to pray about how they can help with this challenge. A couple of things to pray about include whether you can increase your regular contributions, to consider using our on-line contribution system, Faith Direct, and consider any other ways you are called to help in this situation.
