The Archdiocese of Newark
The Finance Council is responsible to assist the Pastor with parish financial planning and administration with the specific mandate to assist the pastor in the administration of temporal goods. A Parish Finance Council is essential to parish life in financially supporting the mission of the parish and planning for the future.
The Parish Administrative Manual serves as a guide to assist parish staff in their day-to-day performance of administrative and management functions. It serves as a consolidated reference document about the operations and programs of the Archdiocese of Newark.
The Manual is functionally organized. The major sections are equivalent to the functional activities of a parish/school.
The manual is designed so that the contents can be updated and revised on an ongoing basis. Revisions result from the implementation of new policies or changes to existing policy, including those direct by government regulatory agencies.
