Our Financial Progress 2009-2015

To help in satisfying the requirements of the Class Action Law Suit, the Diocese was required to liquidate any trusts or special funds it had. The Diocese then reviewed all programs and departments to rationalize all services. 

Our Diocesan Congress in 2013 called for the return of some programs and the implementation of new programs. Through careful management of our funds, streamlining of operations and collection of past debts and accounts due, we are able to support the recommendations of our Congress and fulfill both our financial obligations and the objectives within our five-year pastoral plan.
