St. Philip Weekly Collection Report

To increase transparency and accountability, the St. Philip Temporal Affairs Council publishes in the parish bulletin weekly offerings received in the collection basket. The weekly offerings received help to fund the parish’s ordinary operations (e.g. salaries, utilities, taxes, repairs and maintenance). This does not include those donations received through pre-authorized payment (which provide a reliable and regular revenue stream) or restoration donations (which cannot go towards paying the parish’s regular monthly costs.

For comparison, St. Philip requires $1,370 in weekly offerings made through the collection basket to cover its usual and ongoing monthly expenses. This amount is in addition to the regular monthly donation amounts the parish receives.

This summer, the parish’s weekly offering through the collection basket has averaged $1,008 per week. This represents a cash shortfall of $3,200 over the last two months for the parish what the parish needs to cover its regular operating expenses.

St. Philip Parish’s collection amounts over the last several weeks were as follows:

August 25, 2019 – $944 | August 18, 2019 – $942 | August 11, 2019 – $1,065 | August 4, 2019 – $1,028 | July 28, 2019 – $1,018 | July 21, 2019 – $998 | July 14, 2019 – $968 | July 7, 2019 – $1,270 | June 30, 2019 – $866
