The Pastor, according to Canon Law (1281-1288), has among his responsibilities parish financial and temporal management. The Parish Finance Council (537) is a consultative body that assists the Pastor in meeting these obligations. Its members assist the pastor in the administration of parish temporal matters.
An active, well-formed Parish Finance Council is a key element for promoting the financial health of a parish. Although the Parish Finance Council does not have decision making authority, consultation is at the heart of the decision-making process – sharing information, listening, contributing to the discussion, and promoting consensus.
The Finance Council meets 6:00 p.m. on the fourth Wednesday of the months of September, January, March, and May, and on the third Wednesday of November.
If you would like to sit in on a meeting or present an idea to the finance council, please contact the council president.
