addition to the required consultative councils and committees, many
other committees and groups exist at most parishes to address the
particular needs of parish members, organize events for different age
and interest groups, raise funds for the parish, or support
particular ministries or initiatives at the parish. This Administrative
Handbook assists parishes in these efforts by providing guidance and
resources, such as guidelines for fund-raising ideas like bingo, fiestas, and raffles; procedures for managing capital campaigns; rules for field trips and other off-site events; and safety measures and other guidelines for on-site events and for the participation of volunteers in those efforts.
