WHO ARE WE?
The Temporal Affairs Committee originally known as Finance Council comprises parishioners who are invited by the Pastor to participate in the administration of the temporal affairs of the Parish. Members of the Council serve for terms of three years.
WHAT DO WE DO?
Those who serve on Temporal Affairs Council attend to the temporal affairs of the parish; establish administrative guidelines of the parish; prepare the annual financial report to be submitted to the diocesan administration; prepare and approve the annual budget and publish the latter at the same time as the annual financial report; and designate one of their members to sit on the Parish Pastoral Council.
WHEN AND WHERE DO WE MEET?
The Temporal Affairs Council meets once a month over the period from September to June. Meetings are usually held in the Meeting Room down in the basement.
WHY DO WE EXIST?
To assist the pastor in the administration of the temporal goods of the parish in accordance with the applicable regulations, as set out by the Archdiocese of Ottawa. If you feel called to this ministry, or would like more information, please contact the office.
