The Importance of Parish Reporting
The Annual Parish Pastoral Report and October Mass Counts originating from the Office of Planning and Operations assist the Diocese with the following:
In addition to the above internal uses, the sacramental statistics and other information for the Diocese are required annually by the Central Statistics Office of the Church (Vatican) as well as the Official Catholic Directory.

The help of all pastors and administrators is very much appreciated in this effort.
