Finance Council

The Finance Council is intergral to good parish financeial goverance.  The Council is a consultative body that assists the pastor in the financial administration of the parish.  Canon law mandates that all parishes have a Finance Council.  This Council is to be governed, in addition to universal law, by norms issued by the Archbishop and in which the Christian faithful, selected according to these same norms, are to assist the pastor in the administration of the goods of the parish, without prejudice to the prescript of canon 532 (cc 537).  

Parish Finance Council meetings are typically not open to the parish community.  Reports to the community will be shared once decisions are finalized.  Communication with the parish should also occur at the onset of studying an issue to solicit needs and concerns, gifts and resources of the parish community.  The primary purpose of the Parish Finance Council is to provide open and honest advice to the pastor, if the meetings occurred in a public forum, the discussion may be too limited.  The Finance Council should advise the pastor on the best ways to keep the parish informed and involved in key issues and decisions facing the parish.
