Finance Committee

The purpose of the finance committee is to assist the Pastor in fundraising and stewardship.  In advising the Pastor in the area of finance, this Council addresses itself to hard matters of dollars and cents.  It is to know how much money that the Parish takes in, how much it must pay out, and how can it take provision from its income in order to meet its varied obligations to support the Parish mission and ministries.


The Council is comprised of nine members appointed by the Pastor.  Members are chosen from among those active, registered parishioners who have substantial business, civil law, and financial expertise.  Members serve a term of three years.  Members are ineligible for more than two terms.
