Parish Finance Council

Norms of the Diocese of Fresno - Effective March 1, 2006 Canon 537: “Each parish is to have a finance council which is regulated by universal law as well as by norms issued by the diocesan bishop; in this council the Christian faithful, selected according to the same norms, aid the pastor in the administration of parish goods with due regard for the prescription of canon 532.” (canon 532 and canons 1281-1288 referred to in canon 532 are found at the end of this document.)

The Parish Finance Council is consultative to the pastor. The role of the Parish Finance Council is to advise the pastor on important financial and related matters of parish business, and to assure that diocesan norms are being followed regarding financial matters, as well as to perform specific tasks that the pastor requests to be undertaken or elects to delegate. Its recommendations are to be considered seriously by the pastor in making decisions that are his responsibility by canon law.

St. Anthony’s Parish Finance Council meets every Month.
