Is Your Parish or Religious Order Short on Funds?

The answer is probably, “yes.”

It’s a harsh truth, but due to the rising cost of insurance, utilities and just about everything else that needs replacing in aging parishes across the nation, a growing pile of bills seems to take up more of a pastor’s time than ministering to his flock.

Add to that an aging congregation who may have moved away or passed away, the sky-rocketing cost of living, and burgeoning low-income immigrant populations who haven’t the means to support the parish as the old-timers did.

It adds up to one thing: empty coffers.
