Proper 21
O God, you declare your almighty power chiefly in showing mercy and pity: Grant us the fullness of your grace, that we, running to obtain your promises, may become partakers of your heavenly treasure; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.  Amen.

Episcopal Church Bishops Challenge Trump, Congress on DACA in NY Times Ad
[Episcopal News Service] Some 125 Episcopal Church bishops signed a full-page ad that ran Sept. 21 in the New York Times, imploring President Donald Trump and member of Congress not to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, the program known as DACA.

"To do so would endanger the lives of thousands of young people and their families and run contrary to the faith and moral traditions of our country," wrote 122 bishops, along with Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, 26th Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori and 25th Presiding Bishop Frank T. Griswold. "It is unfair to threaten the well-being of young people who arrived in our country as children through no choice of their own."

The Rev. Richard Witt, executive director of Rural & Migrant Ministries, brought the idea to the Rt. Rev. Lawrence C. Provenzano, bishop of the Diocese of Long Island. His diocese is among, if not, the most diverse in the church, in part because Queens, New York is the most diverse county in nation. READ MORE
Data from 2016 Parochial Reports Now Available
[September 21, 2017] The Rev. Canon Dr. Michael Barlowe, Executive Officer of  General Convention, has announced that data from the 2016 Parochial Reports of the  Episcopal Church is now available  HERE.  At the same time, he has released analysis of the data, available in a variety of ways available  HERE.

Canon Barlowe noted, "The 2016 data reflects a continuation of recent trends, although rates of decline in such key figures as Average Sunday Attendance have decreased." He also observed, "Overall, congregational income through pledges and other offerings has remained constant," even as overall number of congregants has decreased.

The Parochial Report is the oldest, continuous gathering of data by the Episcopal Church.  By tradition and canon, the reporting requirements are developed by the House of Deputies' Committee on the State of the Church, using a form approved by the church's Executive Council.  READ MORE
