Offertory Collection Controls - Responsible Stewardship

Jul. 27, 2015

The Archdiocese of Boston is moving forward with an initiative that soon will become standard practice for offertory collections. Advocated by Cardinal Seán O’Malley, the “Offertory Collection Controls Initiative” has been piloted at approximately 50 parishes to date with a planned rollout over the course of FY16. The goal is simple—to create alignment across parishes so that all employ the same checks and balances in securing offertory.


In an effort to promote this new system of financial controls, the Finance Department partnered with Boston Catholic Development Services and the Parish team at the Catholic Tri-Parishes of Brockton to create a video highlighting these best practices in responsible stewardship. This video presentation clearly outlines the benefits of the Secure Bag System, both for training purposes and for the Catholic faithful who entrust their gifts to the Church. 


For additional information regarding implementation of the Secure Bag System, please contact Mary Frances Allen of the Financial Practices and Compliance Services (FinPAX) Team.
