Finance and Administration

Diocesan Finance Office

The Finance Office of the diocese serves both clergy and congregations through assistance with forms and procedures required by the Episcopal Church offices of Finance, Transition Ministry, and General Convention, as well as the Church Pension Group. For diocesan affairs, the Finance Office monitors revenue and expenditures, monitors filing of parochial reports, and is responsible for processing the financial transactions of the diocese, including cash receipts and disbursements, diocesan payroll processing, and accounts payable and receivable. It is responsible for reporting financial data to management and to diocesan committees. It works with the diocese’s independent auditors to provide annual audited financial reports and to maintain appropriate controls to safeguard diocesan assets. It helps develop the annual diocesan budget and parish assessments.
