Because people who make up the Church live in a world of time and space, the things of the world, or “temporal goods”, must be used by the Church to carry out the spiritual dimensions of religious life. The Church holds and administers temporal goods to serve the mission that the Lord has entrusted to the Church. There are four broad purposes for church property:
- pursuit of divine worship
- Support for clerics and other ministers
- Performance of the apostolic works proper to the Church; and
- Works of charity, especially concern for the needy
Our parish Finance Council advises and counsels the pastor regarding the financial and real patrimony of the parish.
Parish Advisory Council
Our Parish Advisory Council meets once a month during the school year. Our Parish Advisory Council brings ideas and suggestions to the pastor and helps coordinate parish ministries and activities.
