Parochial Report Filing for 2021
Filing and login information as well as other updates from the General Convention Office follows after a letter from the Secretary of the General Convention.
Dear ,
 
My colleagues in the General Convention Office and I are inspired by and grateful for the creative and faithful ways you and the other congregations of The Episcopal Church have responded to meet the enormous challenges of the pandemic. I’m sure that filling out the annual Parochial Report is among the many demands on you.
 
So, I hope this will be an occasion to pause and reflect upon the amazing ministry you have accomplished amid the most difficult circumstances many of us have faced. This upcoming Parochial Report for 2021 continues to be a special edition due to the pandemic; the information you provide will be essential to the church's discernment and planning for ministry and mission in the coming years. To see how congregations are responding to the pandemic while living into such continuing priorities as racial reconciliation, you will notice that there are updated questions for 2021. These questions provide an opportunity to tell the story of the inspiring ministry and determination of this year.
 
The information you provide is valuable: it shares your stories with the whole church, provides an informed context to mission planning, and affords us all an opportunity to thank God for the many blessings that occur even in a time of great challenge. Thank you for your leadership and for your service.
 
In the peace of this holy season, 
The Rev. Canon Michael Barlowe
Secretary of the General Convention and Executive Officer
The Episcopal Church
