St. Paul & Minn. Arch. cuts 20% of 2015 budget, staff reductions

The Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis Chancery Corporation has cut nearly $5 million in expenses, almost 20 percent of the Fiscal Year 2015 operating budget, in order to forge sustainable operations. That included the elimination of 11 positions in the Chancery offices.

Archdiocesan leadership worked with department heads to develop a plan to determine where reductions would be made. Archbishop John Nienstedt approved the plan last week.

The archdiocese’s Chancery Corporation is made up of 10 departments with approximately 160 staff members.

At an Oct. 16 meeting for all staff members, Vicar General Father Charles Lachowitzer said departments will reorder their services in a way that provides “the greatest value to the mission of the archdiocese and of proved benefit to our parishes.” He said the outcome won’t directly affect the budgets of parishes, Catholic schools and other local Catholic entities, which are separately incorporated and have their own budgets.
