WELCOME TO THE FINANCE COMMITTEE PAGE



The Parish Priest is, under Canon Law, ultimately responsible for all matters relating to the finances and property of the parish. The Finance Committee is established under Canon Law and advises the Parish Priest on financial and property issues.The Parish Priest can delegate functions to ensure the orderly running of this large and complex organisation. 

The Finance Committee has established a protocol which sets out the principal delegations.

The key to the delegation is

i) to create separation of functions between different personnel to assist in financial probity
ii) to involve a number of people in financial operations to help with continuity of process in the event of people stepping down.

The Committee meets formally about 6 times a year. It publishes an annual budget and interim quarterly accounts .  Previous years'  acounts can be seen here.
The members are appointed by the Parish Priest and current membership is:
