Parish Finance Council

The Finance Council is composed of parishioners who are interested in the legal and financial areas of our parish life- including the condition of our buildings and grounds- especially as these areas support the mission and ministry of St. Joseph Church.

They regularly monitor parish income and expenditures, approve annual financial reports, discuss the ongoing maintenance issues as well as improvements to our parish plant, propose an annual budget, advise the pastor in the area of fiscal administration and provide any related material to the Archdiocese. The Finance Council meets throughout the year.

Current finance council members:
Melissa Schnipp (chair)
