The Finance Council ensures sound fiscal management for the parish.
About the Finance Council
The Finance Council is the chief advisory body to the Parish Life Director (PLD) on fiscal matters. It is the Finance Council’s responsibility to assist in developing the annual budget, monitor its execution throughout the year and advise the PLD on all matters pertaining to finance. The Finance Council meets monthly to review balance sheets, income/expense statements and cash flow reports. The Finance Council also oversees the school budget, develops annual reports for both the Archdiocese and the parish, monitors salary administration for parish employees and ensures that proper accounting procedures are followed in all money matters. Church law (Canon 537) requires each parish to have a Finance Council and the Finance Council serves on a par with the Pastoral Council in the overall advisory leadership of the parish.
The council consists of the Parish Life Director, the Business Manager, and the School Principal (ex officio members), volunteer parishioners appointed by the PLD and a Holy Family School Board Representative (ex officio member).
