The Code of Canon Law mandates the establishment of a Parish Finance Council in each parish. The role of the council is to assist and advise the Pastor in overseeing and controlling the financial affairs of the parish, including the parish school. The council, which meets with the Pastor and school principal monthly during the school year, is accountable to the Pastor, who has the responsibility for final decisions. Members of the council are appointed by the Pastor for three-year terms to represent the parish at large. They should be skilled in business and have some expertise in management, financial affairs, accounting, legal matters and/or fund raising or a related field.
