Finance Committe

Parish Committees

Finance Committee

The finance committee works closely with the pastor to provide consultation and input on matters of finance. This committee operates independently of the parish council, but updates the council on a regular basis.  To be eligible to serve on a Parish’s Finance Council, the parishioner should be registered with the parish and have no known conflict of interest with any entity doing business with the parish. This is a volunteer position. We meet about 4 times a year. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the parish office.

Members should have some financial expertise, but they do not need to be professional accountants. 

Qualifications include:

  • Appreciation for Church ministry
  • Experience with banking or investing
  • General interest in church financial issues
  • General understanding of proper accounting practices and internal controls
  • Experience preparing, analyzing, or auditing financial statements



Volunteer Screening Committee

The volunteer screening committee fulfills provincial and Archdiocesan mandated program to ensure the safety of parish participants and to manage liability on the part of the parish. It screens all volunteers as they enter into a ministry. 

  • Under the low risk category, forms are filled out, signed and handed in.
  • For volunteers working with the vulnerable (i.e. children and seniors), they must be interviewed and undergo criminal record check.  Please note that the results are kept in strict confidence.
If you are interested in becoming a committee member, please contact the Pastor.
