Who manages the Archdiocese’s financial assets and operations?
Archbishop Vigneron is ultimately responsible for the overall stewardship of Archdiocesan property and financial assets. The daily financial management of Archdiocesan operations and investments is the responsibility of Central Services staff, specifically the Department of Finance and Administration, which reports to the Moderator of the Curia. In the private sector, the Moderator of the Curia has responsibilities similar to a chief operating officer and reports to the Archbishop.
Several consultative bodies assist the Archbishop in the overall stewardship of the Archdiocese of Detroit. The three main bodies that assist him with financial affairs are as follows:
- The Archdiocesan Finance Council: A nine-member committee comprised of laypeople and priests and with operational, financial, banking, auditing, investing, and other backgrounds.
- The Archdiocesan College of Consultors: The priest council of advisors to the Archbishop.
- The Investment Committee: A four-member committee comprised of laypeople and priests with wealth management, investing, and other backgrounds.
