Parochial Reports

The Parochial Report is the oldest, continuous gathering of data by The Episcopal Church. Overseen by the Executive Officer of General Convention, the Parochial Report touches every congregation of the church. Together with other data, including that of the Recorder of Ordinations and the Registrar of General Convention, the Parochial Report provides an insight to the state of the church.

Parochial reports are a critical tool in spotting trends in church growth and giving. The reports also play an important role in developing the diocesan budget and helping staff and commissions to be good stewards of diocesan funds.

Parochial Reports are due each year by March 1. By canon, failure to file the reports by the deadline results in that congregation’s lay delegation losing its vote at convention.
