Clergy Finance

The importance for clergy of paying adequate intention to financial matters cannot be underestimated, and an important part of the work of the Controller’s office staff is to provide information and services to all clergy canonically resident in the Diocese of New York or serving in the Diocese as clergy licensed to officiate.

This section of the Diocesan website is dedicated to providing the basic information needed to do that. It is divided into three parts. Please click on the links below to reach the parts that interest you.

Any clergy person is invited to contact any member of the Controller’s office Staff with questions.
