SEC BUDGETS

Every year the Episcopal Conference submits its budget for the year ahead.

The items for Pastoral Activities are slightly increased, as is Expenditure for Personnel (to comply with the provisions of labour regulations). Expenditure for conservation and supplies is slightly reduced.

The details, according to the standard model for diocesan institutions, are as follows:

Contributions by the faithful: in general terms, the Episcopal Conference is not the recipient of funds from contributions made by the faithful. When someone asks to make a donation, they are redirected to the corresponding diocese. However, this chapter does record some sporadic aid.

Allocation from taxation: this is the amount budgeted in the Inter-Diocesan Common Fund for the partial financing of the Conference’s activities.

Revenue from assets: this heading includes:

  • Accrued rental income corresponding to the properties owned by the Episcopal Conference. It has been adapted to the reality of the current situation.
  • Financial revenue from certain of the Conference’s own funds which are invested in term deposits and maximum-security debt instruments. Its reduction is foreseen due to the fall in interest rates.
  • Economic activities: these are essentially the contribution of the Episcopal Conference publishing houses (EDICE, BAC and Liturgical Books), Ecclesia magazine, copyright management as well as issue fees for titles of suitability.

OTHER CURRENT INCOME: this item includes contributions from some religious institutions as well as various management revenues not corresponding to the other revenue groups.
