Finance Council – Oct 18, 2022
Present: Steve Phyfe, Becky David, Kelly Flege, Scott Danner, Fr Doug Wathier. Also present: Deacon Phil Paladino, Dixie Jacobs.
Monthly Financials: Offertory is about $4,500 above budget. Loose offertory is stronger this year with the return of passing the collection basket. Expenses are below budget due to low utility bills and payroll with staff vacancies. Scott made a motion to accept the financials as presented; Kelly seconded the motion. The motion passed unanimously.
Bequest Update: No update. We have not received the summary of the 3rd auction.
Phase 2 Building Update: $472,000 has been raised from the C. Place bequest, memorials, and parishioner gifts. The capital campaign packets will be distributed mid-Nov. The archdiocese is determining the taxa forgiveness percentage based on how much of the addition will be used for children’s faith formation.
Staffing: Interviews for the building and grounds manager are scheduled for this week.
Nov Meeting: Estate update, Phase 2 update, monthly finances, budgeted withdrawal of endowment.
