One of two standing committees of the parish, the Finance Committee reviews parish finances, plans the annual budget, explores various ways to use the church funds to assure the financial security of St. Mary's, and reports their recommendations to the Vestry for approval.

The other standing committee is the Property Committee. This committee is responsible for maintenance and repair of church property, as well as assessing future needs as the parish grows. Responsibilities include preparing an inventory of church property for insurance purposes.

The Vestry  and Finance Committee meet monthly.  The Property Committee meets
as needed. St. Mary's Annual Meeting is held on the 2nd Sunday of January.
