Collection Ministry Policy and Procedure
St. John the Baptist Catholic Church
The responsibility of the Ministry of Collectors is to assist the church at offertory times by following the protocols for good stewardship and financial oversight for all donations during services. This ministry and service is one filled with dignity, respect, and done as a part of hospitality with a welcoming manner including observance of our dress code and with complete reverence for the Mass.
Our Parish Finance Council and Liturgy Council have established protocols and good practices to make certain we maximize our efforts in collecting what amounts to over 75% of our annual income derived from our weekend Masses, a sacred mission indeed. These procedures were established with the utmost concern for safety and security as well. We rely upon everyone to follow the procedures, attend occasional updates and be faithful in this service by being on time and fulfill the scheduled commitments.
