Increase in Cash 32,544
Cash reserves available to the parish increased by €32,544 from €31,986 in July 2009 to €64,532 in June 2010. [This increase in cash was almost entirely due to the tax rebate the parish received on the eligible donations of parishioners.] A cash reserve of €64,532 is very small and leaves the parish without the resources to undertake any significant expenditure, apart from meeting the annual running costs.
1. The income figures above do not include any money raised in the Share collection taken up at week-end Masses. As in all parishes in the diocese, income from this source is passed to the Archbishop’s House to meet the running costs of the diocese and for grants to poor parishes.
2. The expenditure figures above do not include incomes for the priests of the parish, nor do the income figures include receipts from Christmas and Easter dues or the proceeds of the collection at week-end Masses for “priests of the parish, priests in poorer parishes and sick and retired priests of the diocese”. Receipts from this collection and from dues are paid, as in all parishes, to a fund in the diocese from which salaries/pensions are paid to all serving and retired priests of the diocese.
3. Money received from standing orders to the former Restoration Fund is included under the heading “Envelope collection/standing orders”
