C&B Parish Finance Council

CAMBERLEY & BAGSHOT CATHOLIC PARISH
PARISH FINANCE COUNCIL


 

The purpose of the Parish Finance Council is to provide assistance to the Parish Priest in the administration of the temporal goods of the parish.  In the code of Canon Law, Canon 537 states:

 

"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 aid the Parish Priest in the administration of Parish goods".


The Parish Finance Council is a consultative body, however on certain questions as defined by the Bishops of England and Wales the Parish Priest requires the consent of the council.  At the focus of the work of the PFC is the Mission of the Church, to proclaim Jesus Christ to all peoples.  The bricks and mortar of the parish must therefore serve the mission and not vice versa; the PFC assists the Parish Priest in keeping the Mission of the Church at the heart of all fiancial decisions.


The current membership of the PFC is as follows:
