Reporting to the Diocese

Parochial reports are a critical element in helping us form an understanding of the state of the church. They are also a Canonical requirement. By having clear and accurate data, we will be in a better position to listen to the Holy Spirit as we lead and respond to the challenges in our congregations and ministries, the Episcopal Church in Colorado, and the Episcopal Church at large.

The 2019 Parochial Report and Diocesan & Regional Pledge Forms for 2020 were sent out by mail in December 2019.

  1. The 2019 Parochial Report can be filled out online at http://pr.dfms.org.
    In an effort to continue the spirit of a paperless General Convention, the Episcopal Church will not be sending a batch of letters with information regarding the filing of the 2019 Parochial Report to all congregations. Instead, the Episcopal Church will be emailing congregations individually to provide links and updated information. If you did not enter an email address on your 2018 Parochial Report, you may receive a postcard with the information. Please note you will be asked to create a new login beginning January 2, 2020. You will need your current Unique Episcopal Identifier (UEID) to begin the process. Note your new login will need to be an active email address and your password will be case sensitive. If you do not know your UEID, you may contact the Episcopal Church or look it up here: sites.google.com/view/episcopal-eparish-lookup/. The forms and instructions will be available on the Episcopal Church website at: episcopalchurch.org/research/forms-and-instructions. Reminder: the canonical deadline to submit your reports to the diocese is March 1, 2020.
  2. The Diocesan and Regional Pledge Form for 2020 is due back to the Office of the Bishop by February 15, 2020. The form can be downloaded here.

Thank you for completing both the 2019 Parochial Report and the Diocesan and Regional Pledge Form for 2020.
