 Canon Law Summary

The Finance Committee is an essential element of diocesan organisation (Can. 492). The Finance Committee consists of any members of the faithful (at least three) who are skilled in financial matters and who assist the Bishop in the administration of the temporal goods of the diocese. The Bishop may use the Committee as he sees fit, though in some instances the law requires him to consult the Committee before he acts. 

Among the duties of the Council are: Preparation of the financial statement and budget, (Can. 493) for which consultation with those affected is important; advise the bishop, who must consult them before imposing taxes on parishes as a way of raising revenue; advising the Bishop in his role as administrator of temporal goods belonging to the diocese; regulating the actions of administrators of juridic persons subject to the Bishop (parish priests and parish finance committees, for example); advising the Bishop concerning more important acts of administration of temporal goods; giving consent before the Bishop places acts of extraordinary administration; examining the annual financial reports sent to the Bishop and the Chair of the DFC’s balance sheet for the past year. 

The Finance Committee also advises the Bishop in matters relating to the investment of capital and proceeds of endowments. The Bishop is to seek advice, and in some cases the consent of the Council in matters relating to the sale or transfer of ownership of diocesan property. The Bishop may appoint the Chair of the DFC, but he may not remove him before the end of his term of office except for a grave reason and then only having listened to the advice of the Committee. 

When there is no Bishop, the Finance Committee continues to exist, giving advice to the Diocesan Administrator and ensuring that nothing is done in relation to the administration of the finances or temporal goods of the Diocese which might be prejudicial to the diocese or the rights of the next Bishop. 

The Diocesan Finance Committee and the Financial Secretary advise the Diocesan Trustees on matters relating to the assets of the Diocese 

In this Diocese

The Committee meets under the chairmanship of Mgr John Hull.

Link to the Bishop

Through the Vicar General (Chair) and the Financial Secretary
