ministries + services



The Accounting and Finance Department’s mission is to safeguard, grow and appropriately manage Diocesan resources; to ensure ongoing sustainability and to maximize ministry outcomes; to work collaboratively with the parishes, centers and schools to assist them in enhancing operating effectiveness and increasing stewardship to achieve the Mission, Vision and Strategic Priorities of the Diocese of Orange.



The Accounting and Finance Department safeguards and administers the Diocese’s financial resources by ensuring consistent fiscal management, fiscal transparency, establishing and maintaining clear fiscal policies and procedures throughout the Diocese, while ensuring compliance to audit and generally accepted accounting principles and ethical standards.



The Accounting and Finance Department serves the departments and staff at the Pastoral Center, as well as the staff of the parishes, centers and schools throughout the Diocese.



We provide financial services and support in the areas of accounting, finance and budgeting for both internal departments and the above-mentioned entities. We provide guidance with the staffing for accounting and finance positions throughout the Diocese.
