The Commission for Business Administration & Finance

Parish business administration exists to support the total life of St. Magdalen’s, all of its ministries and activities. It is especially related to social justice in that it operates from the respect for the human person and functions to ensure the rights which flow from human dignity. The Commission for Business Administration and Finance works to ensure responsible stewardship of our parish’s resources in such a way as to be a statement of the parish’s mission to make Christ present to all.
