Finance Council

Every parish shall have a Finance Council distinct from the Parish Pastoral Council. Established by the universal law of the church, the Parish Finance Council is regulated by the norms of the Code of Canon Law as well as by those issued by the diocesan Bishop. The Parish Finance Council is to aid the Pastor in the administration of the goods of the parish.

The Parish Finance Council is made up of members of the Christian faithful selected by the Pastor according to the norms of canon law. Its members should be conscious they share in the mission God has entrusted to the church. As they hold an ecclesiastical office, they should be in full communion with the Catholic Church and members of the parish they are to serve.

Council Members
