      January 21, 2016, WORCESTER, MA -- Following a complete audit of its financial accounting, the Diocese of Worcester has issued online Financial Statements and online and printed editions of the Annual Report on Financial Activities for the fiscal year ending August 31, 2015. In his letter, Most Reverend Robert J. McManus, S.T.D., Bishop of Worcester, wrote that the Diocese was challenged on a number of fronts, including $840,001 in unrealized losses on investments. The Bishop referred to the unrealized losses as “primarily a reflection of the state of the market when our year ended on August 31.” The Statements of Activities showed an operating deficit of $1,192,704 after expenses totaling $25,178,740 for 2015 compared to a surplus of $1,276,057 the previous year, primarily from unrealized gains, on expenses totaling $25,271,377.
