One of the many reasons Institutions struggle in the modern age is an tendency towards secrecy and control. Organizations that struggle with these vices often do so with good intentions, perhaps out of a desire to protect themselves and maintain the status quo. But many pitfalls exist when members of organizations are disconnected from information about the operations and decision-making of their leaders.
At St. Mary's Church we understand that in order to thrive and to continue as a healthy congregation we must recognize the importance of financial and informational transparency. Every meeting, every document, is available to the public upon request, with only two exceptions: Personnel Records and Individual Donation records. These two types of documents remain the property of the employee and the donor, therefore we are not free to share them with the general public.
