Our parish Finance Council meets regularly to project and plan the resources required to sustain and grow the mission, goals and ministries of our parish. In addition to monitoring the budget and financial performance of church, school, catechesis and auxiliary programs, council members direct the communication of financial activities to the parish, including the Parish Annual Report published in our bulletin.
The council operates following the official guidelines set forth by the Financial Services department of Archdiocese of Chicago, and ensures the parish operates in compliance with current Archdiocesan Best Practices for Parish Business Administration. Per the guidelines, council meetings are not open to the public however parishioners are encouraged to submit questions or comments to the council via its chairperson or to the pastor, Rev. Stephen F. Kanonik, or Business Manager, Jeanne Anderson. The council will officially address and respond to the questions as appropriate.
