St. Bruno Finance Council
Finance Council meets the last Tuesday of January, April, July and October
In order to assist the pastor in the administration of the parish’s temporal goods, the Code of Canon Law requires each parish in a diocese to have a finance council (Canon #537). In view of this, the St. Bruno Finance Council is established to advise and assist the pastor in the administration and management of parish resources and property. The Council supervises all parish financial policies and administers all funds of the parish. It is charged with budgetary planning, reviewing parish bookkeeping, and developing financial statements. It approves all fund planning, construction, maintenance, and use of physical facilities of the parish, including all buildings and grounds, and makes recommendations concerning the employment of architects and contractors, the methods of their selection, and the types of physical facilities feasible and necessary within the budgetary limitations of the parish.
