Castlehaven FCBishop Fintan Gavin at the first meeting with Castlehaven Parishioners Paula McCarthy, Jerome Geaney and Johnny Minihane with Fr Bernard Cotter Co-PP.

Members of Parish Finance Committees from across the 68 parishes of the diocese are attending presentations on stewardship of parish funds and assets.

The gatherings are being addressed by Bishop Fintan Gavin, Declan O’Connell - the Financial Administrator of the diocese - and his coworker Yvonne Cohen.
Four meetings are taking place this week and next and the second series will be in the New Year.
Attendees are being updated on how the diocese is organised to meet requirements of the Charities Act 2009.
Parishioners and priests are also being updated on the standards of governance and controls required by the Charities Regulator and by the independent auditors.
2022 was the first time that the consolidated accounts of all the parishes were audited separately from the diocesan accounts.
