  • About the Parish Finance Council

    The Parish Finance Council is a consultative body of the Christian faithful established to advise the Pastor in matters pertaining to the financial affairs of the parish. The Council’s function is to assist the Pastor in the prudent planning and administering of all parish financial matters and in the setting of policy and procedure to provide effective management of parish assets.


    Canon 537 of the 1983 Code of Canon Law requires the creation of a Parish Finance Council, placing in it the competence to advise the pastor in the administration of parish temporalities.


    In fulfilling its responsibilities, the Parish Finance Council must be directed by the values of the Gospel as well as by good business practice. Efficient and effective use and management of parish resources must be measured as much by their contribution to parish mission and ministry as by commonly accepted business standards.
