Assessments and Parochial Information

Summary of assessments reported and balance due through the current month for diocesan churches

An annual financial audit is a canonical requirement of The Episcopal Church.

Title 1, Canon 7, Sec. 1(f)-(g):

(f) All accounts of the Diocese shall be audited annually by an independent Certified Public Accountant. All accounts of Parishes, Missions or other institutions shall be audited annually by an independent Certified Public Accountant, or independent Licensed Public Accountant, or such audit committee as shall be authorized by the Finance Committee, Department of Finance, or other appropriate diocesan authority.

The Episcopal Church has adopted “Five Marks of Mission” to guide the work of its congregations. We believe there is a sixth mark of mission that is essential if congregations hope to achieve any of the original five marks of mission. The sixth mark is to build financially sustainable congregations.
