The main purpose of the Parish Finance Council is to assist the pastor as an advisory committee with parish finances. It also provides advice/recommendations to the Finance Director and the Pastoral ( Parish ) Council as needed.
The Finance Council meets on a monthly basis and periodically reviews parish financial reports, such as budgets, balance sheets, and income statements. It also provides advice on management of parish finances and reviews, parish investments. Results of Diocesan audits are reviewed by the Finance Council and significant gifts or bequests are discussed, and assistance is given in setting parish financial priorities. Meetings are held monthly.
