2010 Kildare & Leighlin Diocesan Financial Statement

This statement is circulated to all parishes and displayed in all our churches.

Commentary on Diocesan Financial Statement

  • The ordinary income for the Diocese comes from the levy which all our 56 parishes pay annually in proportion to their size and income.
  •  Like 2009, ordinary Diocesan spending was reduced in 2010. Total spending for 2010 was €848,045, which closely matched our levy income plus our income from the Diocesan lotto.
  •  In 2010, in addition to the above, €14,132 was spent on child protection services and structures.
  •  In 2010, our diocesan investments increased in value by €178,883. This welcome increase needs to be set against the greater falls in value in recent years. Overall our investments are still down from past peak valuations.
  •  The diocesan levy for 2011 is unchanged at €825,700.
  • The Diocesan Accounts are prepared and audited by a firm of Chartered Accountants – Harney Nolan, Equity House, Dublin Road, Carlow – and presented to the Diocesan Financial Committee.
