The Finance Council is responsible for administrating all the financial affairs of the parish, creating the budget each year and advising parish council on the financial aspects of major projects.

Information about financial matters is given to the parish at large through the weekly bulletin.

Finance Council meetings are held as required throughout the year. The chairperson meets regularly with the Pastor, Parish Secretary and Parish Council Chairperson to deal with routine financial matters. Finance Council chairperson also attends the monthly Parish Pastoral Council meeting (third Tuesday).

Chairperson for the Finance Council is to be elected during the odd years, according to the Bylaws of St. Cecilia Councils. Any diversion is at the direction of the parish priest for situations that warrant an extension of the chairperson's term.
