According to The Diocese of Owensboro Policy Manual...

     Every parish must have a parish pastoral council.  Each parish must also have a finance council as a coordinating committee of the parish pastoral council or as a subcommittee of the parish administration committee.  A pastor may not disband the pastoral or finance council without the permission of the bishop.

     Members must be registered and active members of the parish and are to be elected/appointed for a particular term, determined by the council statues.

     In addition to the finance committee (subcommittee), there must be at least three other coordinating committees:  worship, education, social concerns.  These four committees may be called by the above names or they may be called by similar names.  The school board will function as a subcommittee of the education committee
