Parochial Reports

Parochial reports are sent to the parish offices in January and are due March 1. The reports must be signed off on by the vestry. Forms are posted in early January each year and can be  in the forms directory at the bottom of the page.

Every congregation is required by canon to complete an annual statistical report called the parochial report. The forms are designed by the National Church, and are divided into two sections: (1) Membership, Attendance and Services, (2) Stewardship and Financial Information.

In addition, the diocese includes other forms for the congregation to complete. Currently, we only request information about compensation for clergy. 

Forms  may be submitted online or downloaded and mailed in. To request an extension for filing, please contact the governance office as soon as possible. A compilation of the statistics from the parochial report can be found in the tables at the back of the annual Diocesan Journal and Directory.

Normal Operating Income

Any costs that go into the regular operation of the church are considered to be part of Normal Operating Income. It is also this item that we want you to look at this year for last year's figures when pledging a percentage for the following year. (2017 report being filled out in 2018, and pledging 2019).

No negative amounts or cents

Do not insert any negative numbers in the Parochial Report. Round all numbers to the nearest dollar.
