Finance Council


The Finance Council is made up of members of our parish who have proven abilities and expertise in business and accounting as required by The Roman Catholic Diocese of Phoenix.  Prospective new members must submit their resume for consideration by the pastor and current council members. Members must follow the financial policies of the diocese, canon law and generally accepted accounting principles" (or "GAAP").


The council is advisory to the Pastor in all financial matters of the Parish. In cooperation with the parish staff, it is responsible for the preparation of the annual parish budget. The finance council must approve the final budget. It reviews monthly income, expenses and capital projects as well as the bank account reconciliation. The council establishes a financial strategy for the parish. 

The Finance Council is responsible for overseeing the preparation of two financial reports to the Bishop each year, in January and July and the preparation of the financial section of the Annual Parish Life Report to the faithful. It follows finance council norms set forth by the Diocese of Phoenix Finance Office

Our Parish Finance Council regularly reports financial reports to the parishioners through monthly reports. These are available on this webiste. Read more...

Our Finance Council works with the Pastoral Council to prepare for building more facilities and providing necessary spaces and tools to support our parishioners, staff and clergy who share in the mission of Christ to evangelize the world, particularly within our region.  We can and must Build the Future Together.  Read more...

Meetings:  The Finance Council normally meets in the vestry of the church on the 4th Thursday of the month in early afternoon. These meetings are closed to parishioners except to those on the council. This allows us to freely discuss financial and pastoral matters including confidential matters. This allows the council to prepare good strategies and provide useful advice to the pastor.
