Fiscal Management Report System

My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

The U.S. Bishops in 1992 provided us with a blueprint for the responsible stewardship of the gifts God has bestowed on us in their classic pastoral letter, "Stewardship: A Disciple's Response." It urged us to be models of stewardship in our custody of the Church's funds.

Guided by the wisdom contained in the document, the Diocese of Brooklyn pursues the fulfillment of the goals of responsible stewardship by the offices and programs of the Diocese and in the parishes of Brooklyn and Queens. It is a responsibility not taken lightly.

What aids does the Diocese have in pursuing Gospel stewardship? We rely on the advice and experience of the members of the Diocesan Finance Council, the College of Consultors and the Presbyteral Council. We publish the annual financial statement of the central funds of the Diocese in The Tablet, our diocesan weekly newspaper, and on our diocesan Web site. We do the same for the annual budget of the Diocese. The Stewardship and Development Office uses the same media to make known the use of the funds derived from the Annual Catholic Appeal and the Futures in Education Foundation. The Parish Fiscal Management Office assists parishes in their fiscal responsibilities. These and other initiatives are valuable components of our efforts toward accountability.

Even in an atmosphere of best efforts, when a new way of achieving our goal comes before us it is incumbent on us to examine it and possibly apply it to our pursuit of accountability. Such an opportunity has arisen. The Diocese is establishing a Fiscal Management Report System with the advice of EthicsPoint, Inc., an independent office that will facilitate a process for us. It will enable employees, volunteers, parishioners, vendors and other to share their concerns about the financial practices and policies of the Diocese and parishes. They may do so without revealing their identity.

Our hope is that this will enhance our ongoing commitment to utilize God's gifts to benefit His people and give greater glory to Him.

With every best wish, I am

Sincerely in Christ,

Reverend Nicholas DiMarzio

Most Reverend Nicholas DiMarzio, Ph.D., D.D.
Bishop of Brooklyn
