Finance Council

Organizational Structure
The responsibility for the sound financial management of the Parish, including the goal of ensuring complete transparency, rests with a group of individuals working in a supportive and cooperative manner.

Under Canon law, the Pastor has primary responsibility for the administration of the temporal goods of the parish.  He discharges this duty under the vigilance of, and in accordance with, the instructions of the Bishop.  He has the responsibility for making all of the financial decisions for the Parish.

The Pastor is supported in this area by the Parish Finance Council.  The Finance Council is a consultative body of lay persons mandated by Canon law to advise the Pastor in matters pertaining to the financial affairs of the Parish.  The Finance Council is advisory to the Pastor and its decisions/recommendations are valid only when accepted and ratified by the Pastor.
