The Governance of The Episcopal Church: The following information is another in an ongoing series discussing the governance of The Episcopal Church. Also, Episcopal Church lingo and terms are used; check the websites listed at the end for any necessary explanations

Forms for the Episcopal Church Parochial Report for 2011 are now available on www.episcopalchurch.org/research  and http://generalconvention.org/gc/parochial_reports.

All congregations in the Episcopal Church are canonically required to complete and submit the Parochial Report annually. Data derived from the Parochial Report is used by the Episcopal Church Research Office, dioceses, congregations, and the House of Deputies Committee on the State of the Church to track attendance, trends, membership and other critical information for the purpose of planning mission strategy.

Also available on the web are general instructions for completing the Parochial Report forms as well as line-by-line details listed in the workbooks.

All forms are available in English, Spanish and French.

In December, the Office of General Convention will issue a filing packet to all congregations and dioceses with filing commencing on January 4, 2012.

For more information contact Kirk Hadaway, Director of Research, khadaway@episcopalchurch.org.
