The complexity of modern parishes has led the church to mandate the creation of Parish Finance Councils to assist the Pastor in a consultative role with his administrative duties with an emphasis upon the Christian stewardship of the goods entrusted to the parish

Council Members are appointed solely by the Pastor for an expected three-year term.  Parishioners interested in serving on the Finance  Council should contact the Pastor, the parish Business Manager or the Council Chairman preferably in writing including a current resume.  Council members need to be familiar with interpreting financial reports and investment statements along with general           management experience in areas such as, for example, human resources, budgeting, print communications, and various types of  insurance.


  • Identify, evaluate and formulate the parish’s needs for present and long range financial support.

  • Assist in determining the best means of investing excess parish funds.

  • Bring about active and informed participation of parishioners in the Archbishop’s Annual campaign for Progress.

  • Keep archdiocesan assessment payments current.

  • Develop and maintain just and non-discriminatory salaries and benefits
    for parish employees.

  • Approve an annual operating and capital budget, and review their management during the applicable fiscal year.

  • Keep current concerning all archdiocesan policies regarding investments, fund raising, property sale, etc.

  • Develop a system to keep parishioners informed of the financial status of the parish.


There are monthly meetings lasting between two and three hours.  Members are expected to attend at least ten meetings per year as a matter of fairness to other Council members and the pastor.  Each meeting has an agenda and the results of the meetings are documented.
