Finance Council

The Parish Finance Council’s mission is to share in the responsibility of developing, within the parish community, an awareness of the Gospel call for sound stewardship. The Finance Council’s role is to serve the Parish in a two-fold capacity: as an advisory body to the Pastor on matters of ordinary administration, and as a consenting body in matters of extraordinary administration, the Finance Council is an important and critical addition to the life of the Parish. In order to fulfill its purpose, the members of the Parish Finance Council must have a personal spirituality that involves them in the life of the Parish, providing them with a familiarity of the pastoral needs of the parish community and a ministerial awareness that is open to developing the Parish’s outreach where it is needed. The Finance Council cannot lose the perspective that they are sharing in the ministry of our Lord Jesus and not just responsible for sound business oriented decisions.
