Parochial Report, Journal Information Form, and Salary Survey

2016 parochial reports should be filed by March 1, 2017. Additionally, for diocesan use, the following two forms need to be completed by each church and returned to the diocese by March 1, 2017.

Open and SAVE the forms on your computer. Then you can complete and email them to Susan Allen at sallen@diosova.org. Alternatively, you may print, fill out by hand, and mail the forms to us at 11827 Canon Blvd., Suite 101, Newport News, VA 23606-3071. The salary survey may be submitted on an Excel spreadsheet instead of using the form above. This spreadsheet can be saved and updated each year, making the process a little easier for you. If you have questions, please contact Susan Allen at 757-213-3391 or sallen@diosova.org
