Parish Finance Council
"Guard, through the Holy Spirit who dwells in us, the treasure which has been entrusted to you."
-2 Timothy 1:14
The Parish Finance Council works closely with Msgr. Robert Dempsey for the administration and stewardship of the temporal goods of the parish. Msgr. Dempsey has among his responsibilities, the responsibility for parish financial and temporal management. The Parish Finance Council is a consultative body that assists him in meeting these obligations. While the Parish Finance Council does not have decision making authority, consultation is at the heart of the decision making process -- sharing information, listening, contributing to the discussion, and promoting consensus.
In order to be effective in their responsibilities as members of the Parish Finance Council, members should have a love for the Church and its mission and develop a thorough understanding of the parish's mission, goals, people, and other resources. The members should have knowledge of diocesan statutes and policies regarding temporal issues and other financial matters.
