St. John Neumann Catholic Church!
A Message From Fr. Pat...
To my dear St. John Neumann Parish family:
Twice each year, the Diocese of Charlotte requires that the pastor provide a report to parishioners on the financial state of the parish. As in the past, financial summaries are available at the Welcome Desk for you to take home with you today.
Through the first six months of the year, offertory is about flat from last year, as is overall revenue (which includes non-offertory related items such as religious education fees, restricted donations, contributions from the Knights of Columbus, and fundraising). This is the first year in recent memory in which we have not shown at least a modest increase. Expenses are about 1.2% over budget, which is not alarming, but obviously not supported by increased offertory. While year-to-date we show a surplus of $59,023, the building of the rectory will result in a large deficit for the year, which, will be, as planned, funded from our savings.
Speaking of rectory construction, you may have noticed the lack of progress. Delays in the permitting process, mostly related to demolition permit for the existing house on the property, have delayed the start of the project. We believe we have worked through all those issues, and now should be able to move forward.
As you know, we have great plans for the future here at St. John Neumann. Just the other day, I was speaking with Sharon Davis, the director of the Charlotte Regional Office for Catholic Charities, about our desire to include an expanded food pantry in our Parish Office project. She was excited to explore ways that Catholic Charities could help us, but first we need to build it!! So, as always, I count on your prayerful and financial support to help OUR dreams (and the dreams of so many) to come true! I thank you for your generosity, and pray that, going forward, we can continue to work together to preach the Gospel right her in East Charlotte.
Have a great week!

A hearing loop sends clear, pure sound to your CI or hearing aid without background noise Even with the most up-to-date technology, CIs and hearing aids cannot completely separate important sounds from background noises; nor do they pick up all sounds from a distance such as those in a performance hall, a church or a home TV viewed from across the room. In such listening settings, induction hearing loops can offer a solution. A hearing loop wirelessly transmits sound to antennae, called a telecoil, inside your CI or hearing aid. A hearing loop can be connected to public address system, a home TV or any other audio source. SJN offers a T-coil loop. To use the T-coil system, print or view the instructions sheet.
