Parish Financial Summary
2020/2021 Financial Year

The 2020/2021 year has brought with it many challenges again with COVID restrictions having an impact on the financial flow and connectedness of the Parish. As we battle through this, our qualification for financial support from the State Government of $5,000 and the Federal Government in $10,000 for Cash Flow Boost and $91,200 to support our ability to retain our staff through JobKeeper was an enormous assistance to the parish and those relying on us.

Throughout these challenges we are very grateful for the continuing financial support we have received from our parishioners through the planned giving programme. We are truly blessed by your committment in supporting us along with some overwhelmingly generous ‘one off’ donations received over the past financial year inlcuding a bequest of $50,000. 

Maintenance of the ageing parish facilities assets are a never-ending chore. Despite the restrictions and challenges over the past year, we were pleased to still be able to undertake a fix to the interior paintwork of the church (skirting boards, altar, Reconciliation Room and narthex area). We are in the planning stages of obtaining quotes to now look at the exterior painting of the church in the near future. 

We remain vigilant but sensitive to the future humanity and financial challenges that lay ahead and the impacts these may have on the parish and our parishioners, and deeply thank you for your ongoing commitment to your faith and our wonderful parish of St Brendan's.
