Sharing Church management best practices in the Catholic Church
Maryann Dantuano from the Vincentian Center for Church and Society at St. John’s University in Queens, New York discusses accountability and the development of an annual report for your parish. How can the Parish Finance Council assist the pastor in designing, publishing and explaining an annual report to inform and educate parishioners about the status of the parish’s ministries and financial standing.
