Latest Financial Updates:
Parochial Report Revisions due July 2nd (June 22, 2021)
A number of churches are asking to revise their 2020 Parochial Reports to correct financial page information. The Parochial Report portal is closed for on-line changes, both to churches and the Diocese of Maine's Parochial Report administrator. However, the Diocese Office will accept revised Parochial Reports sent to Canon Terry Reimer as an Adobe pdf attachment through Friday, July 2. Canon Reimer will accumulate the revised 2020 Parochial Reports and submit them to the Episcopal Church Research Office.
Please use the blank pdf 2020 Parochial Report form found here. If you have any questions, please contact Canon Reimer.
