The Envelope Secretary has responsibility to ensure that the offering is counted after each service, results are tracked, and then receipts issued at year end. There is a faithful group of counters who work in pairs each week to accomplish this.
Each week following the service the offering is counted, documented as required, prepared for the bank and then deposited. Barb W. then takes the information and enters it into a computer program in order to track receiptable donations and issue tax receipts. Added to these results is the information for the Electronic Collection Plate (ECP) amounts given by our parishioners. The information on ECP is received from the Diocese quarterly.
