Dear Parishioners,
          Below is the 2011 – 2012 Financial Report for Saint Anselm Parish and School. The previous three years are there as
well for you to compare. By offering you – the worshipping, contributing members of the Church – this comparative report, I
strive to keep you informed and knowledgeable about the parish’s operating income and expenses.
          I cannot thank enough our parishioners who contribute weekly or monthly and so generously to the support of the
Parish. So let me thank you again. I am deeply grateful to each and every person who financially contributes to Saint Anselm
Church. I am most grateful to the Finance Council (Elinor Leshinski, Rich Myslinski, Deacon Warner and Terry Grillo) for
their counsel, insight, direction, and for helping the Parish have a balanced operating budget. Our records show that 2,883
families (8,192 parishioners) belong to Saint Anselm Parish.
          I ask that all parishioners maintain their level of contributions to the Church. If you can increase it weekly or
occasionally, please do so. Thank you.       Father Dunleavy

       Comment: The generosity of those who give sacrificially and generously is commendable.
       Only 20% of Registered Parishioners attend Mass weekly. Saint Anselm Parish needs the presence,
               participation, and generous financial contributions from the other 80%.

2011 – 12 Total Excess Operating Income            211,814 (Church) minus (-120,593) School            = 91,221

The excess funds figures $91,221 includes $19,050 in school registration fees and $31,749 for school tuition for
fiscal 2012-12. Subtracting these figures brings the excess funds down to $40,422 which is from the Church’s side.
These excess funds from the Church side of the fiscal report become reserved funds for Church use. Reserved
funds are used for emergency and unbudgeted needs. For example, last fiscal year $22,650 of these reserved funds
were used for heating control upgradings on our School/Church heating system.
