The Finance Council is similar to the Parish Pastoral Council in that it is consultative in nature, offering advice to the pastor.
It must observe both canon law and civil law in sound management of the temporal goods of the parish.
It inquires as to satisfaction of generally accepted internal control practices. It monitors revenues and parish assets, and reviews expenses and payments to ensure budget compliance. The Finance Council oversees parish investments in accord with the Clergy bulletin on parish Administration. — Clergy Bulletin XIX
The Finance Council meets the third Monday of the month at 6:30 pm.
