The Finance Department has responsibility for reporting and recommending to Diocesan Council financial strategies and funding methods and procedures for all aspects of the operation of Synod. This includes making a recommendation to Diocesan Council on balance sheet and treasury strategies, financial polices and management, and financial administration. Financial management includes managing and mitigating financial risk and related insurance matters. This involves implementing, administering and monitoring the recommendations approved by Diocesan Council. Much of the focus is on Synod; however, the department is also concerned with the financial well-being of the parishes in the Diocese.
