St. Bede Parish

PASTOR: Rev. Edward M. Bryce
DEACON ADMIN:  Deacon Rick Tucek


Finance Council

The Saint Bede Parish Finance Council (PFC) was formed in 2003.  The PFC provides advice to the pastor and deacon administrator in the financial matters of the parish, following operating guidelines of the Diocese of Pittsburgh.  It also is charged with reviewing and approving certain large expenditures by the parish according to thresholds established by the Diocese, and with reviewing and approving the annual parish financial report prepared by the pastor and deacon administrator.

The PFC meets monthly to review school and parish financial statements, and to discuss financial matters of the parish.  The pastor or deacon administrator is present and participates in meetings of the PFC.

The PFC has a subcommittee focused on setting tuition rates and monitoring and supervising tuition collection for Saint Bede School.  It also has a subcommittee focused on maintenance of parish and school facilities.

Members of the PFC are appointed by the pastor or deacon administrator.  Members generally serve four-year terms but may be reappointed at the discretion of the pastor or deacon administrator.
