Parishes can only fulfill goals of ministry if there are sufficient financial resources, maintained buildings, and professional staffs in place. Responsible stewardship requires all members to share in the growth of the parishes through sharing of time, talent, and treasure.
Each archdiocesan parish in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee is an independent religious corporation established according to the Civil Statutes of the State of Wisconsin. The directors of the parish corporation board are the archbishop, a vicar general of the archdiocese, the pastor and two lay members of the parish referred to as “trustees.” The
pastor holds the position of vice-president; the lay trustees serve as treasurer and secretary,and the archbishop is the president.
Also, each parish has its own Finance Commission, which advises the pastors on carrying out his administrative responsibilities.
