PAROCHIAL

Every congregation is required to complete an annual statistical report – called the parochial report – and file a clergy compensation form.

Parochial reports and clergy compensation forms are transmitted to parish offices in January and must be filed with the diocesan office by March 1. Parochial reports must be signed off on by the vestry. For your convenience, forms are also posted online in early January each year and can be found at the bottom of this page.

The parochial report is designed by The Episocpal Church, and is divided into several sections: Membership, Attendance and Services, Stewardship and Financial Information, Clerical Service, and Outreach Questions.

A resolution of the 1976 Convention states that “the salary and allowances of each diocesan and parochial ecclesiastical position be published annually in the Journal.” For this reason, the Diocese of Washington also gathers clergy compensation information.

To request an extension for filing or password reset, please contact Kimberly Vaughn 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 Journal.

 

FORMS

Forms should be submitted online but may be downloaded and mailed in if necessary.

INSTRUCTIONS

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. (2020 report being filled out in 2021, and pledging 2022).

NO NEGATIVE AMOUNTS OR CENTS
Do not insert any negative numbers in the Parochial Report. Round all numbers to the nearest dollar.
