Finance Department

The Finance Department for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Boise has as its mission

 to be a good steward of the temporal goods of the Catholic Faith Community in Idaho.


To achieve this mission the department endeavors to keep Diocesan Ministries

and programs running smoothly by adequately budgeting for them, and

monitoring the financial condition of the Diocese to insure that funds will be

available to provide for the various ministries at the appropriate time.


Secondly, the finance office administers centralized programs that benefit

parishes and schools across the Diocese in the area of cash operations,

investments, real estate acquisition, insurance and payroll.
