A Parishioner’s Guide to Understanding Parish Finances
This Parishioner's Guide includes 15 questions designed to further the parishioner’s understanding of her or his parish's finances.
Stewardship is the responsibility of all parishioners. In order to be good stewards, parishioners should possess a basic understanding of parish financial operations. This understanding provides opportunities to further serve the parish.
This pamphlet from the Leadership Roundtable is designed to assess parishioners’ knowledge of parish finances and provides questions to ask parish leaders. While each of the questions in the guide can be answered with a “yes” or “no”, they are also starting points for richer discussions about financial stewardship in the parish.
