Diocesan Financial Statement:

The Diocese of Jackson has made public a "for-public-viewing" report of their financial report for 2019 and 2020. This does not include an accounting for Catholic Charities of Jackson. You may view what is available by clicking here.

The Diocese has set up a fraud hotline for anyone who has concerns about the solicitation or use of money advertised to go to the Church or Diocese. This goes directly to the Diocesan Financial Office and clergy to report any concerns with Diocesan Finances and clergy solicitations or misuse of funds.

You are also welcome to contact the State Auditor if you want an objective investigation.
