The Parish Council
A number of parishioners with skills in various areas form the parish council, appointed by the parish priest. As well as giving advice on matters of parish concern, they are responsible for the counting and banking of the weekly collection, the overseeing of income and expenditure and the preparation of the annual financial return to the diocese.
