2020 has been a “challenging” year and yet there is good news to report for the Grand Island Diocesan Council of Catholic Women’s review of the past two years. With the cancellation of the Spring Assembly and the social distancing since March 2020 receipts and disbursements are down but we will still be able to make distributions from our established funds. The following is a brief summary of the receipts for the past 2 years.
In 2019 Dues/Contributions totaled $7,311.85 with 39 dues paying affiliates. In 2020 the receipts for Dues/Contributions totaled $6,839.25 with 38 affiliates out of 65 parishes participating.
In 2019 the Seminarian Fund received $11,495.61 from 30 participating parishes and individuals. In 2020 this fund received $9,104.39 from 23 participating parishes and individuals.
