Money Talk:

From Boston, the Archdiocese is re-approaching donors now that Law is gone

and in Long Island, tales of donation challenges

In the New York metropolitan area, Brooklyn is the only diocese that publishes an audited financial statement in its diocesan newspaper, The Tablet."We have not released financial statements and I do not know of any plans to do so,” said Joseph Zwilling, spokesman for Cardinal Edward Egan of the Archdiocese of New York.Rockville Centre stopped publishing financial statements a few years ago, but the bishop's finance council planned to discuss possible changes to the practice, according to Novarro.Asked who the finance council members are and when they would decide, she replied: "We're not releasing the names. They're five people who have volunteered their time. We don't want them to be hounded by the media. We will release the information we should release when we're ready to release it and not before.”
