2014 Annual financial report

12-11-financial-report-frontA letter from Bishop Robert E. Guglielmone

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

During this season of Advent, we experience a time of joyful expectation for the coming birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ. As we anticipate His arrival we make special preparations to welcome Him into our homes. Our churches in the Diocese of Charleston are also our homes, created as a place of worship and celebration of the holy sacrifice of the Mass, and where we prepare ourselves for eternal salvation.

It is important that in the day-to-day functioning of a church we remember that material goods only serve as tools in spreading the spiritual goods of our faith. As your bishop, it is my responsibility to ensure that all of these resources are developed in a way that secures our purpose in this life, to know and to love God. And, with an accounting of the Diocese of Charleston’s finances, you see that through your continued generosity and good stewardship, we are able to carry on the mission of Our Savior.

As in the past, I encourage you to read the full report on the diocesan website (, but am thankful to say that we maintain our successful record of managing the resources to which we have been entrusted, and are humbled by the increasing generosity of our people who support the Church and the Bishop’s Annual Appeal.

Thank you for your prayers and devoted stewardship. May God bless you and your families.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

+Most Rev. Robert E. Guglielmone
Bishop of Charleston
