Finance Council

The Finance Council is a committee of the parish required by both the Code of Canon Law and the guidelines of the Archdiocese. The Finance Council works with the Pastor who is accountable to the Archbishop for the administration and stewardship of the temporal goods of the parish. Consultation is at the heart of the decision-making process – sharing information, contributing to discussion and promoting consensus. The Council assists the pastor on matters relating to the financial management of the parish, including but not limited to the operating and capital budgets and the annual financial report. Members are Christian faithful who are experts in different areas related to finance, law and general business matters.
