Annual Financial Report to the Parish…

I wish to express my sincere gratitude for your continued support of St. Ignatius Loyola Parish: first, through your engagement in one or more of our 30 active ministries – including Edge and Forged, our new ministries for youth and for young adults. In addition to being very generous with your time and talent, you have also been very generous with your financial support again this year. This financial support is directed not only towards the operation of the parish but also to special projects such as ShareLife, The Shepherds’ Trust, Mission Co-Op, Hope for Haiti, and Humanitarian Relief for disasters in various parts of the world such as Indonesia and the Philippines. A copy of the Financial Report for 2018 may be found here. I would like to take a moment to highlight some specific items.

Offertory revenue, including Christmas and Easter collections, decreased by 3.3% from 2017 with our parish operating expenditures (excluding Special Collections and Refugee Sponsorship expenses) also decreased by a similar amount of 3.5%.

Our capital fund currently has a balance of $1.3 million on deposit with the Archdiocese. Last year, we used $733,000 of our capital funds for the replacement of our peaked roofs with synthetic slate, new skylights and extra insulation. In 2019, we are planning a retrofit of our parish offices and meeting rooms, as well as ongoing replacement of heating and air conditioning units.

Special thanks to those who continue to fulfil your pledges to the Family of Faith Campaign. This year, $114,594 has been collected and added to our parish capital fund to offset the cost of the recent parking expansion project. Tax receipts for your Family of Faith donations will be mailed to you directly from the Archdiocese.

Tax receipts for the year 2018 are available in the main foyer of the church. As your pastor, I sincerely thank you for your continued and generous support - both financial and in your dedicated service to our parish community. It is a privilege to be the pastor of this busy and vibrant parish! I also wish to thank the members of our Property and Finance Committee who are presenting the financial report at each mass this weekend, and the entire committee for their wise advice and assistance, namely; Christine Burton, Michael Furlong, Peter Kastelic, Maureen Kelly, Tom Pippy, Bob Stevens and Fred Taggart.
