Information recently sent to clergy and diocesan convention deputies contained inaccurate information about membership in the diocese.
The mistake was the result of a clerical error in a chart that detailed parish statistics for 2008, specifically the number of baptized members of Trinity Cathedral. As a result, the total membership of the diocese was also added incorrectly, and a description of the data posted on the diocesan website mischaracterized the change over the previous year. The correct 2008 figure, as reported by Trinity, is 212 members, bringing the diocesan total to 8,833.
We apologize for the inadvertent mistake.
