The Financial Council has short term and long term responsibilities. The council handles short term operations such as weekly envelope and cash contributions, special collections, diocesan appeals, school and church attendance, parish census, record keeping, income/expenditure analyses, and data bank updating. Long term, the council is involved with budgetary and financial planning, investments, and forecasting future financial needs of the parish.
An integral part of both the short and long term operations concerns our physical plant needs. We have established a Physical Plant Committee with advisory responsibility for all property: church, school, rectory, parish center, parking, and grounds. This includes review and updating of short term maintenance contracts, and planning for major physical plant refurbishing.
Members of the financial council are appointed by the pastor.
The Parish Council represents the wider parish community and has the task of assisting our parish staff in evaluating, recommending and prioritizing the spiritual and social activities of the parish.
Members are both elected and appointed.
