Lyndsey Bredin, 27, from Primity Crescent, Newbuildings, attended Derry Magistrates' Court on Thursday for a preliminary enquiry hearing.
She is alleged to have committed nineteen charges of stealing credit balances belonging to the parish on dates between 24 March, 2010 and 17 October, 2011.
The defendant said she understood the charges and her defence solicitor Paddy McDaid accepted that she had a prima facie case to answer.
Asked if she had anything to say in answer to the nineteen charges, the defendant replied "not at this time".
She was released on her own bail of £500 to appear before the Crown Court for her arraignment on 13 February.
As part of her bail conditions, she must continue to reside at her home address.
