Under the direct supervision of the Pastor, a parish’s administration is done through the individuals and groups that advise him in an orderly and professional manner. The Finance Council oversees the fiscal affairs of the parish, but there are many others who contribute to parish administration. A successful parish must have good communication and organization and development of these qualities never ends as long as this faith community endures.
This group of volunteers acts in an advisory capacity to the pastor and staff and represent the parish community as a whole. The Council meets six times a year and provides a multitude of perspectives to the pastor in his efforts to make decisions for the good of the entire parish.
