Finance Council

Mission Statement: To assist the Pastor in the administration of temporal goods of the parish, including finances and parish property. According to the Code of Canon Law (Canon 537) there are to be at least two members of the council selected by the Pastor. The Finance Council supports the mission of the parish by assuring that we are good stewards of our time, talent, and treasure, putting them in service to the work of the Church.

Included among the activities of the Finance Council are reviewing reports concerning budgeting, receipt and disbursement of income, reviewing periodic financial statements, reporting the financial state of the parish on an annual basis, advising the Pastor concerning incurring and satisfying parish debt, recommending to the diocese approval of proposed contracts in excess of a threshold dollar amount, and considering issues designed to safeguard the ownership of parish property.
