(For the weekend of August 5, 2018)
To increase transparency and accountability, St. Philip’s Temporal Affairs Council has begun publishing the weekly collection offerings received in the collection basket. The weekly offerings received help fund the parish’s ordinary operations (i.e. salaries, utilities, taxes, repairs and maintenance, etc.). The reported amounts do not include those donations received via pre-authorized payment (which provide a reliable revenue stream to the parish) or renovation donations (which cannot go towards paying the parish’s regular, monthly costs).
For comparison, St. Philip’s requires $1,370 in weekly offerings (made through the collection basket) to cover its usual and ongoing monthly expenses.
St. Philip Parish’s weekly offerings over the last several weekends were:
August 5, 2018 – $855
July 29, 2018 – $1,099
July 22, 2018 – $1,024
July 15, 2018 – $1,099
July 8, 2018 $1,282
July 1, 2018 – $831
(In July and August, the weekly collection amounts will be posted here, since the parish bulletin will only be published monthly.)
