The purpose of the Finance Council is to provide our Pastor, the Pastoral Council, and other leadership bodies with professional financial analysis. It is to serve the goals and priorities set by the Pastoral Council. It assists the pastor by: 

  • Conducting long range financial planning with regard to funding operational and capital needs in the parish and developing a three year fiscal plan.
  • Developing and overseeing a parish budget process which results in an annual parish budget that supports the parish priorities and goals determined by the Pastor and Pastoral Council.
  • Providing the Annual Parish Report.

Deacon Randy McMahon
Deacon Randy McMahon served in the United States Marine Corps for 26 years. His strong background in logistics lead to his selection for Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) where he completed the first of two graduate degrees, a Master of Arts in Finance. Upon completion of his studies at NPS, Deacon Randy was assigned to HQMC in the Fiscal Division as the Congressional Liaison Officer and Budget Coordinator where he worked closely with Congressional Staff Members and House/Senate Representatives in putting together the USMC Budget.

As his Marine Corps career led to ever increasing leadership and command responsibilities, Randy’s desire to serve his community also expanded. He responded by assuming more direct community involvement through Catholic parishes.  Deacon Randy, alongside his wife Linda, have been with our Holy Trinity Parish since the very first “Mass On The Grass”.  He was the first Deacon to be assigned to Holy Trinity.
