Covid19 Update – Restrictions on parish expenditure

Diocesan Council has determined that a parish must seek approval from the Diocesan Chief Executive to incur expenditure or make a payment in excess of $2500 unless the expenditure or payment relates to the diocesan invoices, utilities expenses or health & safety expenses. This approval can be sought by an email to the executive team. Diocesan Council made this decision on 26 March when it considered the COVID19 emergency and aftermath may last for around 12 months and recognised the potential of significant financial issues facing the Diocese.
