Annual Parish Financial Report
Click on a section title for more information...
All parishes in the Diocese of Winona are required to file an Annual Financial Report to the Diocese of Winona Pastoral Center by August 31 of each year. The reporting period coincides with the fiscal year: July 1, 2011 through June 30, 2012. The pastor, lay trustees and the individual preparing the documents are expected to sign the Annual Financial Report.
All funds held in bank accounts, at the Diocese of Winona Deposit and Loan Fund and in other investment vehicles, such as stocks and bonds, (including parish endowments), must be disclosed on the Annual Financial Report. Annual activity in each fund or account must be included in the revenue and expense activity disclosed on the report.
The financial information contained in the Annual Report should be communicated to the Parish Finance Council on an annual basis. A summary version of the report may be provided to parishioners.
The Diocese of Winona uses the Annual Financial Report as a tool for financial accountability, internal financial analysis and historical record. In addition, the Annual Financial Report is used to determine the diocesan assessment, pension plan for priests assessment and annual diocesan appeal target. It is important to receive accurate and timely financial information so that these objectives can be obtained.
