October Count - This fall our Diocese will again involve itself in a common pastoral practice across the U.S. known as the “October Count.”  Each individual who attends the weekend Eucharist across our Diocese during October will be counted in order to allow for better pastoral planning for the benefit of our parishes and our Diocese.  The month of October is selected since it has been statistically proven that it represents the best month for this project.
