Ten Year Statistical Analysis

Please note! This document is formatted to print in landscape position on legal sized paper.
Each year, the Office the Chancellor sends out the “Status Animarum” report to the parishes, asking for the figures
on the census and sacramental life of the parish. This report usually coincides with the annual statistical report which the
Chancellor must send to the Official Catholic Directory on the overall condition of the diocese.

Listed below is a table that gives ten years of figures gleaned from these reports. This ten year statistical analysis gives
us a picture of the life of the diocese over the past ten years.
