Diocesan Report Instructions / Instrucciones para el Informe Diocesano

Each diocese is required to prepare an annual report in a form authorized by the Executive Council and approved by the House of Deputies Committee on the State of the Church (Canon I.6.4). The current form, available below as a PDF, contains information on congregations organized or closed during the previous year and a section on diocesan income.

Please download your Diocesan Report forms, print, complete, and mail to:

Community Profile Tool

Studying Your Congregation and Community

In order to know who you are, you need to examine where you are and where you have been. Looking at the social and demographic characteristics of the local community sheds light on the people to which we hope to minister.  Looking at trends in membership, average worship attendance, and financial giving sheds light on congregational strength and whether current patterns indicate growth, decline or stability.

By following the instructions below, you can display and print two charts and a community demographic profile. The two charts track membership, participation, and giving over the most recently available eleven years for your congregation and your diocese. These data are from annual Parochial Reports. The community demographic profile will give you a demographic overview of the area within a three-mile radius of your congregation’s physical location.

For guides to understanding the information provided in the profiles, please see the Mosaic Descriptions. Use the online community profile tool, found at this link: http://pr.dfms.org/studyyourcongregation, to find information about your community. Profiles of a larger area are available from the research office, diocesan and congregational ministries.
