OUR FINANCE COUNCIL
What is a Finance Council?
The Parish Finance Council is a consultative body of lay persons, mandated by canon law, whose purpose is to advise the pastor in matters pertaining to the financial affairs of the parish.
The pastor has authority from the Bishop and the universal law of the Church to decide and act on behalf of the parish (Canon 532). The Parish Finance Council is strictly advisory to the pastor.
Nevertheless, the expertise of the laity is essential to the parish in order to most effectively guide the decisions of the pastor. Together they work, then, to make wise financial decisions, so as to be good stewards of all that God has entrusted to the parish.
Finance Council members are appointed by the pastor.
