The Finance Committee is a consultative body made up of parishioners and its purpose is to advise the Pastor in matters regarding the financial affairs of the parish. The Finance Committee meets approximately a few times per year to review the financial statements, and to establish the budget for the upcoming year
The Finance Committee is directed by the values of the Gospel in fulfilling its responsibilities, as well as by good business practices. 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.
Primary areas of responsibility for the Finance Committee include:
- To ensure that the annual budget is properly prepared for review and presented to the parish.
- To ensure that the required Semi-Annual and Annual Financial Report is prepared and submitted to the Diocese.
- To prepare and publish an Annual Financial Statement and Report for the members of the parish community.
- To develop procedures for the deposit of church funds in interest-bearing chequing and savings accounts.
- To evaluate and to make recommendations regarding the needs and the effectiveness of the parish’s effort of church support through the Sunday offertory and other fundraising activities.
- To develop appropriate plans for the financing of necessary repairs, renovations, purchase of equipment and future building for the parish.
- To communicate the financial status of the parish to the parish community
