last year s budget process
Last year’s budget process

For the Archdiocesan operations it was agreed that:

  • A deficit budget for the 2010-11 year was acceptable BUT was unacceptable on a three year projection basis
    • Past history suggested that
      • Expenditure savings would be found
      • CDF income would be higher
      • Bequests (budgeted for zero) would amount to approx $10,000
  • Work would be undertaken by the Administration and Finance team to continually drive up revenue and control expenditure in order to overcome the large and rapidly rising projected deficits
  • Major strategic projects would be undertaken that released expenditure pressure
in the 2010 11 fiscal year
In the 2010-11 fiscal year…

The Administration and Financial Services Leadership Team...

Communicated to Archdiocesan management, staff and the wider Catholic community about the current and future financial pressures via..

  • Directors meetings
  • Ongoing reviews of expenditure
  • Meetings of Canonical bodies
  • Administration and Finance ‘Parish Roadshow’ 2010
  • Consultation with the Clergy Trust Fund
the 2010 11 fiscal year outcome
The 2010-11 fiscal year outcome…

And what eventuated was....

...Projected operating deficit of $120,000

Was reduced to:

...Operating deficit of $3,500

and then came the 2011 12 budget process
And then came the 2011-12 budget process…

Once the 2010-11 work was taken into account the 2011-12 budget has a different look to it

  • Revenue and Expenditure matching on a departmental basis
  • Separate accounting for specific levies and funding groups, matching to actual expenditure and reported outside of the core Archdiocesan operational budget
  • Clearly identified specific reserves being drawn upon to cover core Archdiocesan operational deficits
which has clear funding of shared responsibilities
...which has clear funding of shared responsibilities…
  • NATIONAL COMMITTMENTS LEVY:
    • ALL PARISHES contribute a 9% percentage of total parish income less interest on CDF investments (‘Levy-able Income’).
  • LAY PASTORAL LEADER LEVY
    • ALL PARISHES contribute 7% of levy-able income. (approximately the figure proposed by Cardinal Williams, 2003)
  • SUPPORT OF BISHOPS
    • ALL PARISHES contribute 2% of levy-able Income towards the Bishops Fund.
  • SUPPORT OF PRIESTS
    • ALL PARISHES contribute 29% of levy-able income to the House Account/CTF Common Fund or if a religious order staffed parish - to that community.
and the 2011 12 budget has been approved
...and the 2011-12 Budget has been approved

The Archdiocesan board of Administration recommended to the Archbishop that the budget for 2011-12 be accepted as a transition year

  • All departments will continue to focus on operating procedures and reviewing costs
  • The Archbishop and Directors continue the strategic review of revenue and expenditure

Archdiocesan Focus Group:What is it all about...

Cardinal Tom, speaking of the 1988 Synod said:

“The outcome will not be any astounding revolution, of course.

I have to be a realist like yourselves and accept that the most telling image of the Church is an untidy caravan struggling across the desert, not a regiment of infantry marching in perfect step across an immaculate parade ground.

We are after all the People of God.”

Cardinal Thomas Williams, Pastoral Letter on the Synod 88-89
