Financial Audits

Financial audits are due to the Convention office annually by September 1. Audits must include a certificate or report of the audit as well as the audited financials, including but not limited to the year-end balance sheet and profit & loss statements. (Diocesan C&C, Canon VI, section 6.02)

If you have questions or require assistance, please email swylie@ladiocese.org.

2021 Parochial Reports

The online portal to file the 2021 Parochial Report is now closed.

Many congregations have not yet completed their 2021 or 2020 Parochial Report. While these can no longer be filed online, they are still canonically required. Please fill out a blank report and then submit a signed copy by email to swylie@ladiocese.org and the Convention office will finish filing it with the General Convention office on your behalf.

Diocesan Institutions are entitled to 1 lay delegate.
