A Word from Father Ed…

 

 

         

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

 

            This weekend at all Masses members of the parish finance council are reporting on Notre Dame’s financial status.  As they do so I offer you a few reminders. 

 

            The pope himself requires that every parish have a finance council and that it govern the parish in its financial affairs; having one is not optional.  The pope leaves the particulars about how each parish finance council is to operate to the local bishop.  In Denver, therefore, the Archbishop of Denver requires a parish finance council to approve the parish’s annual budget, to submit that budget to himself for approval, to consent to all major capital maintenance and improvement projects over $35,000, to ensure the compliance of the pastor with archdiocesan norms and policies, to be consulted on the salaries of employees, etc.  And the archbishop requires that annually the council report to you, the parishioners, on the parish’s finances and its own activity. 

 

            The archbishop requires that the finances and financial activity of the parish be reviewed whenever there is a change of pastors.  Accordingly, the archdiocese reviewed Notre Dame’s finances last year, the last year of Father Gass’ stewardship of the parish’s finances; last spring we reported to you the results of that review.  Although the archbishop did not require us to be reviewed again this year, nonetheless the parish finance council and I requested one in order to establish a “bottom line” of my stewardship of parish finances, this being the first full year of my administration of the parish.

 

            Our parish finance council is made up of seven men and women expert in financial, legal, business, and administrative matters and above all of high moral and ethical character.  1/3 of the council’s membership changes each year in order continually to secure new leadership, ideas, and perspectives.  At present the council consists of Al Duran (chairman); Ron Carlson; Heidi Ernst; Ted Gerity; Tim McKenna; Tom Schaeffer; and Mike Strawbridge.  (Each of these members is available to speak with you regarding the parish’s finances.  Email me for their contact information should you desire to do so.)  I thank them for their service.  Too I thank the three members who are concluding their service on the council, namely, Marietta Clare; Ron Guida; and Francey Pistono.

 

            Thank you for the trust you place in the parish finance council and me in stewarding the financial resources of the parish—that the gospel be proclaimed and the poor served.  I repeat my invitation to you increasingly to trust the Lord with your family’s financial resources by tithing to the parish—tithing that is a priority, planned, progressive, and percentage based,

 

                                                                                                                                                                                      

                                                                                                                                                                          Father Ed
