CORPUS CHRISTI CATHOLIC COMMUNITY
FINANCIAL COMMENTS 2016, 2017
The day-to-day running of a parish is in some material ways very similar to running any business venture. Bills and payrolls must be paid; the church building and other associated structures and all of its property and equipment must be properly maintained. Heating and cooling equipment has to be inspected and serviced on a periodic basis. Resources must also be available to meet the unexpected and often untimely expenses. The following “snapshots” of the financial basics for the three parishes, the school and the cemetery will give you some idea of the expenses for each institution and the funds collected in the same year to cover those expenses.
