1 Annual Stewardship Report St. Rose of Lima Catholic Parish July 1, June 30, 2017

2

3 September 24, 2017 My Dear Parishioners, Presented here is the Annual Stewardship Report for fiscal year I am very pleased to inform you that St. Rose of Lima Parish remains financially strong, and is current with all of our financial obligations. There is much good news to report! Thanks to God and the power of prayer, our church membership continues to grow. There are now 1,670 registered parish families. In fact, 25 RCIA participants are preparing to receive the Sacraments of Christian Initiation. Some of them will be baptized, confirmed and will enjoy the Lord in the Eucharist for the first time, others are preparing to be received into full communion with the Catholic Church, and some Roman Catholics are preparing to complete their initiation. What a blessing! With 633 children and youth enrolled, our Religious Education program is strong and growing. Many of our parishioners have made Adoration of the Most Holy Sacrament each Thursday a remarkable success. Jesus is greatly blessing our parish for our love, humility and devotion to His real presence in such a simple but powerful way. Our Accommodating Hearts Ministry remains a beacon of light and commitment to spreading the Gospel in our parish and local community. During this past year, your donations included $1,485,749 in Offertory, compared to $1,424,191 in FY ; $150,130 in our Green Envelope Debt Reduction Fund, compared to $156,389 in FY ; and $182,672 in our Blue Envelope Capital Campaign, compared to $105,059 in FY Thank you for your willingness to grow one step which was clearly indicated in the increased donations to the Offertory. As you can see in the graph on the back page, during the last five years your total giving has been at historically high levels. The Debt Reduction and Capital Campaign are critical for our parish. We paid $203,362 towards our debt, bringing it down to $715,274 as of June 30, We continue to set aside $10,000 per month to build up our reserves. I am delighted to report that solid progress has been made on the actual pre-construction work for the Narthex/Gathering Space which will finally complete our Church. Throughout this past year, the Gathering Space team that I asked to assist me with this project has been meeting to finalize construction details and for financing and engineering aspects. In addition, we have contracted with the Kerns Group, our original architect. Work is being done with them continued... 1

4 to complete the concept drawings and final plans. After a careful search process, a construction company has already been chosen. The construction final proposal has been submitted to the Archdiocese of Washington s College of Consultors for approval. As soon as the approval is granted, the construction process will begin. Overall St. Rose enjoyed its best year ever in Offertory income received. As a result, we were able to grow ministries and make needed improvements to the parish campus. A very exciting area of growth for us is that St. Rose has embarked on a new chapter in Catechesis called Family Formation. This was in response to the Church s call for parents to be the primary educators of the children in Faith. By evangelizing parents and providing them support and encouragement in their mission as educators, parents receive the know how to share the Good News and beauty of the Catholic faith with their children. There are currently over 200 families now participating in this exciting Kindergarten through Grade 6 program! Some of the special projects and improvements we were able to do included finishing the painting projects that began in the prior fiscal year, replacing our entire phone system (which failed after more than 20 years of service), and regrading our asphalt walkway which leads to the Historic Chapel to eliminate mud pooling. Additionally, we made major repairs and upgrades to the HVAC system in the main Church. We also performed roof repairs and longterm maintenance on that building. Our total operating expenses were $1,864,411, which was $95,192 more than the Finance Council budgeted to be spent during the fiscal year. Our operating income was $1,917,302, so we ended up with an operating gain of $52,891. Our healthy financial position and the growth of our membership are the result of your generous support and participation in parish life. Thank you for the loving contributions of your prayers, time, talent, and treasure to St. Rose of Lima. God bless you for your generosity, faith and support. I want to also thank our Finance Council for their loving support in helping our parish in fulfilling its sacred mission. Gratefully in Christ, 2 Fr. Agustín Mateo Ayala Pastor

5 Who is a Christian steward? One who receives God s gifts gratefully, cherishes and tends them in a responsible and accountable manner, shares them in justice and love with others, and returns them with increase to the Lord. (Stewardship: A Disciple s Response, USCCB: 1993) With each contribution show a cheerful countenance, and pay your tithes in a spirit of joy. Give to the Most High as He has given to you, generously, according to your means. (Sirach 35:8-9) 3

8 July 1, June 30, 2017 The information herein illustrates the generosity of our parishioners. Last fiscal year a total of $367,645 was contributed to a wide variety of social ministries on behalf of the poor and vulnerable, in both the St. Rose Community and beyond our parish boundaries. In addition to these easily measured sacrificial gifts of treasure, parishioners also contributed tremendous gifts of time and talent impossible to calculate. Through these three elements of Christian Stewardship, we glorify God and are bread for one another. Through the ARCHDIOCESAN COLLECTIONS listed below, we join Catholics throughout the United States in supporting ministries at home and abroad. Cath. Communications & Human Dev Catholic Relief Services... 6,211 Catholic University Church in the Developing World... 1,202 Church Missions in the U.S.... 2,383 Holy Father... 1,814 Holy Land... 4,243 Operation Rice Bowl Archdiocesan Priests Retirement... 2,125 Propagation of the Faith... 1,396 Retirement for Religious... 4,146 Other Archdiocesan Collections... 8, ARCHDIOCESAN COLLECTIONS. 34, ARCHDIOCESAN COLLECTIONS... 19,710 Funds pledged to the CARDINAL S APPEAL support a wide variety of archdiocesan works, including: soup kitchens, shelters, outreach and counseling to families in crisis, support for women in crisis pregnancies, emergency financial assistance, and support for inner-city Catholic schools CARDINAL S APPEAL , CARDINAL S APPEAL ,716 We also provide support for CATHOLIC EDUCATION.

Funding comes from direct contributions by parishioners. This year, the funds were split between Day Spring Church and the City of Gaithersburg. The Day Spring Church provided Metro fare cards and food cards to refugees to help them become self-sufficient. The City of Gaithersburg disbursement supported residents of the Wells/Robertson House, Inc., helping people overcome homelessness and addiction SOCIAL ACTION FUND... 2, SOCIAL ACTION FUND... 2,035 The POOR BOX receives a tithe from parish operations funds, as well as direct contributions from parishioners. While much of our Poor Box giving is channeled on a monthly basis through the Upper Montgomery County Assistance Network (UMAN), Gaithersburg HELP and Germantown HELP, it also supports advocacy organizations such as Action in Montgomery. We often work closely with the City of Gaithersburg s Community Services Program Manager in contributing to collections supported by many organizations to assist especially needy persons in the local community. Emergency assistance, usually for parish members, is also given from our Poor Box. This help is for such items as food and utility bills, especially for the unemployed; emergency travel expenses, gas, rental assistance, etc. UMAN... 12,100 Gaithersburg HELP... 6,000 Germantown HELP... 5,000 Action in Montgomery... 6,050 Emergency Assistance... 7,621 St. Vincent de Paul Society... 2,550 Upcounty Community Resources... 2, POOR BOX... 41, POOR BOX... 36, GRAND TOTAL , GRAND TOTAL ,084 7
