Parishes in the Diocese of Lexington are required to either have an audit from an outside accountant, or to perform an internal audit by committee. Information on the audit by committee process can be found in the following files:
All audits are due to the Ven. Bryant Kibler, Bishop’s Deputy for Administration, no later than September 1 of the year following the year-end.
Information on filing your annual parochial report (and statistics compiled from prior year’s parochial reports) can be found at http://www.episcopalchurch.org/109378_105232_ENG_HTM.htm.
