Finance Committee

Finance Committee

According to the Code of Canon Law every parish must have a financial council to assist the parish priest in the administration of the goods of the parish and be accountable to the Diocesan bishop. The Parish Finance Committee has responsibility for the Parish’s finances and property. It ensures that separate financial accounts are kept of the Parish, the Hall and the Social Club and are reported on a regular basis to the Parish Pastoral Council and to the diocese of Middlesbrough. Any expenditure must be agreed by the Committee. It also acts as an advisor to the Parish Priest on financial matters. It comprises the Parish Priest, the Financial Secretary, the Buildings and Maintenance Manager, the Chairman of the Parish Pastoral Council and one elected member of the Parish Pastoral Council. In addition there is a secretary and an independent advisor.
