Property and Finance  

The only committee that we are obliged to have in a parish, according to Canon Law, is a Finance Committee. Father Paul brought together a group of those who have been involved in finance and property matters in the parish. The group met for the first time in 2017.

It s now a bigger group involving representatives from counters, input of data, computer programmers, Gift Aid organisers and people with property experience.

Ideally the committee can comment on the annual accounts, share wisdom about any building developments with financial implications and set priorities for the future.

As the cost of running parishes becomes more challenging and and those who contribute are financially squeezed, along with the lessening of Mass attendance, so it becomes more important to manage parish finance with care.
