In March 2022, the Diocesan Council, upon recommendation of the diocesan Personnel Commission, froze congregation grades at 2022 levels through at least the end of 2023.

Congregational grades for 2022/2023 for parishes and missions. This refers to the congregation grade for churches which helps to determine clergy compensation and assessment values.  The congregational grade is updated every year. Those churches that are in bolded text have changed grades from the previous year.

The supply clergy compensation rates for 2023 are as follows:

Sunday/primary liturgy* with preaching: One liturgy $297.59; additional consecutive liturgies $67.73 each.​
