COVID-19 Guidelines for In-Person Indoor Gatherings

While we recognize that many parishes have already addressed most of the issues raised in these guidelines, during the past few months the Diocesan office has received a number of inquiries, and we believed it might be helpful to organize our guidance in one document. Note that these guidelines are subject to change as we learn more about COVID-19, so please stay abreast of CDC and Department of Health guidelines.

2020-21 Clergy Compensation Guide

The Clergy Compensation Guide, excerpted from the pre-convention journal, lays out guiding principles and numerical guidelines to help congregations budget clergy salaries appropriately.

The guide includes information on: Cash compensation, Required Benefits, Additional Benefits, Advocacy during negotiations, Clergy supply guidelines, Clergy housing allowance and a mileage report template.

If any vestry or congregation has questions about clergy compensation not covered in this document, you're welcome to contact the Diocesan office.
