Parish Stewardship

There are several facets of stewardship. Maintenance and Custodial Care of our facilities and planning for our future needs is a responsibility of the pastor. However, providing the necessary resources to the parish is the responsibility of the parishioners.

Transparency and Accountability are not merely “buzz words” that we use. They have specific meaning and the reality is that good communication contributes to the fiscal health and well-being of the parish. The details below, such as the Status of our Mortgage on the Gym as well as how we are doing with the Cardinal’s Annual Stewardship Appeal are provided so parishioners can track how their contributions are being used and they can understand what is required for moving the parish forward. Financial Statements, which are posted annually in the parish bulletin, provide information on how we have done in the past.

Maintenance and Custodial Care of Our Buildings and Grounds

We would like to keep parishioners informed about ongoing projects and Stewardship in Action and will use space in the bulletin and on our web site to do that:

Dear Fr. Sorgie,

Congratulations to you and Immaculate Conception and Assumption Parish on surpassing your 2016 Cardinal’s Annual Stewardship Appeal goal! Thank you for your dedication to this important effort, which as you know, impacts the lives of so many of our brothers and sisters in faith and need.

Please know how deeply grateful I am for your commitment to your parish and archdiocese. The Cardinal’s Appeal helps to fulfill our responsibility to spread the Good News and mission of Jesus Christ and our Church. Because of your hard work, the countless “thank yous” I receive while travelling throughout our archdiocese belong to you.

With renewed gratitude and prayerful best wishes, I remain

Fraternally in Christ,
Timothy Michael Cardinal Dolan
Archbishop of New York
