Diocesan Mission and Ministry Dividend to Parishes – Diocesan Office, Parrish

PARRISH – In a letter to vestries, Bishop Dabney T. Smith announced a $150,000 “mission and ministry dividend” for local use for congregations, a result of full participation in annual diocesan apportionment. The Diocese has been able to return a portion of apportionment payments to congregations due to the fact that all churches paid their full apportionment.
