“Cast your bread upon the water, and it will come back buttered,” — with these words, a quote from her grandmother, Chair of the Budget Subcommittee Canon Patricia

Davis presented a near balanced budget for approval by delegates attending the 144th Niagara Synod.

She also referred delegates to Matthew 17:20, where Jesus said if we had faith the size of a mustard seed, we could move mountains.

In 2019, diocesan expenses ($3,253,500) should exceed income ($3,263,080) by $9,580.

In her slide presentation, Pat reiterated that we are grateful for our blessings to do what God calls us to do.

Mission at the parish, diocesan, national and international levels combined with a wide range of ministries at each level enables Niagara Diocese to insure “God’s work is done.”
