ST. STEPHEN PARISH
The financial statement summarizes the St Stephen Parish financial performance for 2022 and the operating budget for 2023. it can be found here.
Our parishioners continued their generous financial support in 2022. Mass attendance, while improving, has not fully recovered from the effects of the pandemic; however, plate collections for the year remained strong at 90% of pre-pandemic levels. Operating costs were effectively controlled - and we continue to rely on our volunteers for administration, office staff, bookkeeping and many other functions. As a result, we ended the year “in the black” with operating revenues exceeding costs by $38,000. These funds are being used to contribute to the costs of improvements to our facilities.
For 2023 we are conservatively budgeting for breakeven operations. We will be incurring some nonrecurring maintenance, repair and other costs as we prepare for the merger of St Stephen and Christ the King parishes. Also, ongoing inflationary pressures continue to affect operating expenses. In response, we are implementing cost reduction efficiencies in anticipation of the merger. For example, we now have a combined music staff from which musicians are assigned for the Masses at St Stephen and CTK, resulting in consistent music quality. During 2023 we will proceed with the combination of other operations in the areas of finance, maintenance and certain administrative functions.
Over the past three years we have been working to improve our facilities. Completed projects include repaving and restriping of the parking lot, upgrading of parking lot and pathway lighting, replacement of wood siding panels on the church, new appliances in the parish hall kitchen and the new sound system in the church. More improvements are planned - replacement of the heating/air conditioning system in the church, upgrading of the restrooms in the parish hall, repairs to the flooring in the hall and cleaning of carpets in the church.
Thanks to your continued support and generosity, our parish continues to be in sound financial condition as we move toward the merger with Christ the King.

We’re looking for volunteers to donate their time and talent in several roles: set-up and take-

laundry; and other special skills.
