The Parish Finance Council works closely with the Pastor, who is accountable to the people of Saint Anne and the bishop for the administration and stewardship of the temporal goods of the parish. The Pastor, according to Canon Law, has among his responsibilities the supervision of parish financial and temporal management. The Parish Finance Council is a consultative body that advises and collaborates with the Pastor and the Business Manager in ensuring that we meet these obligations. Full consultation is at the heart of all of our financial decision-making process. The full sharing of financial information, developing the preview of the annual parish budget and the sharing of wisdom regarding the financial operation of the parish are keys to the work of the committee. Both the Pastor and the council members discern membership on the Finance Council. Terms on this leadership body are two to four years.
