The mission of the Diocesan Finance Office is to ensure proper stewardship of church temporal resources. We have the responsibility to safeguard the Church's assets, exercise prudence in financial matters, be accountable to donors of the church and comply with all civil regulations.
We accomplish this by ensuring strong internal controls, providing an accounting for the sources and uses of funds, and by being a resource for parishes, schools, and agencies.
Financial oversight is provided by the diocesan Finance Council, which is directly responsible to the bishop, and by routine financial audits. Annual independent audits are conducted for various funds of the diocese.
