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. These 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. Bishop Thomas E. Breidenthal intends to direct Diocesan Council to adhere to the canons regarding the deadlines.
