The role of the Finance Council is to assist and advise the Pastor in overseeing and controlling the financial affairs of the parish. The Finance Council is accountable to the Pastor, who has the responsibility for final decisions. It is understood that if the advice of the Finance Council is unanimous on a given matter, the Pastor will give serious consideration to the recommendation and not lightly reject it.
Members are appointed by the Pastor and must be active members of the parish community. Members are skilled in business and have some expertise in management, financial, accounting, law, fund raising or related fields.
