Council and Committees
The Finance Council is a consultative body, which helps the pastor in the administration of the material goods and needs of the parish. The Council functions to prepare the budget of income and expenses of the parish, annual evaluation and renewal of the parish stewardship program, and the overseeing and maintenance of the buildings and grounds. The Finance Council consists of the pastor and five members from the parish. The kind of assistance offered by this Council requires both dedication to the Church’s mission and skill in dealing with financial matters. Because of these qualifications, the Finance Council members are appointed by the pastor after careful inquiry.
