From the Pastor's Desk

On Tuesday evening, August 9 the Finance Committee met to discuss results from last fiscal year ending June 30, 2022. We also discussed a budget for the upcoming Fiscal year ending June 30, 2023.

Our major expenses that we incur on a monthly basis here at Our Lady of Guadalupe are:

  1. Payroll for staff members
  2. Health Insurance for staff members less the amount contributed by staff members on a monthly basis
  3. Pension for staff members
  4. Monthly Diocesan Assessment
  5. Utilities and Church and Grounds upkeep

The amount due per month for items 1-4 above are approximately $36,000.

As you know we rely on the generosity of our parishioners on a weekly/monthly basis to help meet our expenses.

The parish of Our Lady of Guadalupe’s finances are really no different than our parishioner’s individual finances. We have month’s where the cash flow is better, and we have no problem meeting our monthly expenses. We also have month’s where cash isn’t as good, and we have to work hard to pay our bills on time. Finances are stressful and it is usually nobody’s favorite thing to do, but we need to do it anyway.

Fr. Kevin and the staff at Our Lady of Guadalupe are committed to scrutinizing our expenditures and reviewing ways to cut cost when possible. I’m sure your family’s expenses are no different.

My question to you is when was the last time you seriously reviewed what you have been contributing to the parish on a weekly or monthly basis?

Have you considered lately how generous God has been to your family not only monetarily but other blessings and graces you have received?

Have you considered praying about whether God is calling you to increase your weekly or monthly giving amount?

God is a generous God, and we can never outgive God.

In these inflationary and difficult times, it can be easy to say that “I can’t give anymore.” And if you have prayed and discerned about what you give to Our Lady of Guadalupe and the answer you get is “I can’t give anymore”, then God knows what is in your heart and that is all that matters.

But I do invite you to pray and discern and see if you can give more than you are currently giving now. And, if you currently aren’t giving to see if you can’t start again.

Be assured of our prayers for each and every family at Our Lady of Guadalupe. Our prayer is that God will bless you generously and abundantly spiritually and financially in these difficult times.

 

God Bless,

Deacon Dave
