What is a Finance and Fabric Committee?

According to canon law, the temporal and spiritual goods of a parish are entrusted to the jurisdiction of the Parish Priest. The PP is required to have a finance committee that he consults in determining how the parish finances are to be administered. The committee is consultative rather than deliberative and thus the PP attends its meetings to hear its advice, rather than chairs the committee as a part of it.

As the title of the new committee indicates, it does not relate to general matters of pastoral care and will be distinct from other consultative bodies that Fr Dylan wishes to gradually establish, namely, a parish ‘Vision Group’ and the Parish Evangelisation Team.
