The Finance Council, according to Church law, advises the pastor on financial matters. More specifically, according to Archdiocesan regulation, the Finance Council should consist of three to five members with financial expertise to oversee the parish budget, to advise on spending projects up to $10,000.00, and to prepare an outline of parish finances to present to the Archdiocesan Debt Review Committee for larger projects.
Here at Holy Trinity the Parish Finance Council is comprised of 5 business lay persons (Vicki Weynand, Maria Childs, Eric Zeitler, David Kiolbassa and Gonzalo Bautista). The Council meets quarterly to carry out its function. When there are special projects taking place, the Council meets more often as needed.
