Fundraising by any group on parish grounds, or in the parish name, requires prior written approval by the pastor. The policy and request form can be downloaded here.
Sacred Heart Staff, Council and Commissions work to administer our parish financial resources, according to principles of good stewardship.
Operating Budget process: The parish operates on a fiscal year from July 1 to June 31st. Departments submit initial budget requests in January , which are consolidated with input from Staff, Stewardship Commission and Pastoral Council. The preliminary budget is typically established by the end of February to allow school tuition numbers to be published. Income assumptions and expense projections are monitored through the Spring and the final budget is submitted to the Archdiocese in May. Income and expenses are monitored throughout the year and adjusted as required to ensure that deficit spending does not occur.
Reporting & Accountability Sunday Offering totals, verified by two office personel, are published weekly in the Guardian. Each September the pastor presents to the parish a financial report detailing the previous and current budget information for the parish and school. Annual statements are mailed in January to each contributor.
