Parish Finance Council

The Holy Spirit Finance Council was formed to advise and collaborate with the Pastor and Business Manager on all financial matters of the parish, including church, religious education, and ministries.

Our goal is to analyze and understand parish financial information in order to provide a well-balanced recommendation on financial issues to the pastor.

The council members meet on a regular basis to review financial statement year-to-date progress, provide guidance on budgeting for the following fiscal year, and make recommendations as appropriate to the pastor regarding financial expenditures.
