Parish Finance Committee

According to church law, every parish must have a finance council which is regulated by universal church law and the norms of the local bishop. In the Diocese of Syracuse, a parish finance committee consists of the two parish trustees as well as other qualified persons appointed by the pastor. A representative from the parish council and someone from St Margaret School also attend finance committee meetings. This committee assists the pastor in the preparation of the annual budget and financial report for the church and school and offers advice on the administration of parish goods. The finance committee of St. Margaret Church generally meets four times a year.

Current permanent members are trustees Sam Rotundo and Kelly Merrill as well as Mike Dunne, Amanda Hopkins, Marie Tricarico and Christina Marcuccio, parish business manager.
