Finance Council

Our Parish recognizes that an active, well-formed Parish Finance Council is a key element for promoting the financial health of a parish, assuring accountability and assisting the Priest with his temporal responsibilities in accordance with Canon 537 of the Code of Canon Law.  The Parish Finance Council assists the Priest-in-Charge in the administration and stewardship of the parish temporal goods.

 

Functions

Specifically the Finance Council:
a)    Formulates the financing strategy for the Parish based on its short and long term needs, and in line with norms issued by the Archbishop.
b)    Prepares the Parish annual budget;
c)    Provides assistance in the implementation of the Parish budget
