October 11, 2015 – A View from the Rectory Window

Within this view, I provide you with a summary fiscal accounting of our parish for the fiscal year July 1, 2014 through June 30, 2015, please review this report at 2015 Finance Presentation St. Max Kolbe July 1, 2014 through June 30, 2015.

I also make available for your consideration, some of the efforts of our parishioners to care for those who are in need of spiritual, emotional, and/or physical assistance, please review this report at 2015 Parish Stewardship Report.

It would not be possible to present the full scope of our efforts in one summary sheet. For this reason, I ask pardon of those who may feel that their efforts went unnoticed or unacknowledged. At the same time, I trust that our efforts are not done to win the praise of others, but rather, are in response to all that God has given us.

The Parish Finance Council, the Parish Pastoral Council and I have sought to be prudent stewards of the resources entrusted to our care. You can read about these efforts in greater detail in the Pastoral Council Minutes found on our parish website at http://saintmaxkolbe.com/parish-council-minutes/ . I know that transparency in this regard is one of our foremost obligations to you. I hope this brief report reflects our intention to be faithful to this obligation.

In seeking to follow our obligation to be transparent, I invite you on Thursday, October 22 at 7pm, in the extension of the Church of the Resurrection, to meet with representatives of the Parish Finance Council, to ask any questions you may have in regard to this report.

I again thank you for all that you do to ensure that our parish family strives to make a return to the Lord for His goodness to us and that our expressions of faith befit what we profess and believe.

Saint Maximilian Kolbe, pray for us.


Father Pete
