Financial misconduct in parishes is all too common | Crux

Indeed, it is all too common! This is why I've always refused to have anything to do with handling the collections or making financial decisions in any parish where I've served. The only way to guarantee that money is correctly handled is to establish a system of transparency and accountability with multiple lay people handling the financial affairs. It should be this way in every parish.



After all, a priest is only in a parish for a limited period of time but the laity will live there for most of their lives - at least, that's the case in this corner of the Catholic world. So why should the priest get to make decisions in lieu of the people who are going to have to live with the consequences in the long term?
