According to the diocesan Parish Finance Manual that was issued li 2020. every parish
and diocesan school is required to report annually the results of their ﬁnancial activities for
the ﬁscal year ending June 30. Bishop Caggiano has determined that the first Sunday of Decernber every year will ‘be known “Accountability Sunday.” on that .day, this reporting will occur, and every parish and,
school, as well as the Diocese and its. related entities will publish their annual ﬁnancial reports.
In short, the purpose of “Accountability Sunday” is to ensure financial transparency; to
communicate to all parishioners and donors that good stewardship is being practiced and
to provide a standard report that is consistent and straightforward.
