The Parish Business Administrator manages the financial and physical assets of the parish. In administering the operational requirements of our parish, this office prepares the budget and executes control over expenses and purchases. It is also the point of contact to the Diocese of Dallas relating to financial management, fund raising, and administration.
(Financial report for the fiscal year ended 6/30/16 is attached to the left.)
One area supervised directly by the Office of Business Administration is the nursery and its staff. Our nursery enables parents to have confidence that their children are well cared for in a safe environment while they devote their attention to Sunday Mass and church sponsored programs and activities. Child Care Coordinator/Nursery Director, Sharon Bush's goal is to make sure that children's church times are happy times.
We have only one major fund raiser a year. We like to think of it as a "fun raiser." In the past, the parish festival, which is usually held the last weekend in September, has provided us with much needed funds to supplement the generosity of our parishioners. Here is one activity with a job for every volunteer in the parish. Get involved and have fun!
