I have been attending St. Benedict's for the past several months. Every week that I have attended, I have felt as if I was attending a financial meeting! Every week the liturgy is devoted to discussing the financial situation of the church as well as an update on the building plans for the new church. Last week, they even had a guest speaker (financial advisor) come during the liturgy and discuss how members are not donating enough money each week to the church!!! Never had I been to a mass where this was actually discussed in such great detail. The financial advisor even gave statistics, i.e. There are 500 families who are registerd and out of those 500 families, only 150 families donate the recommended $20 or more offering!!!!
