I’m sorry, but why is this news? Almost every Diocese I’ve seen dedicated plenty of space on its website and clergy communications to the way to file such applications. The only news I see is that the list is so short. Which is probably because it’s so inaccurate: my own Diocese, West Missouri, is missing from the list but most certainly took out a PPP loan.

This list is just for for loans of $150,000+. There is a separate list for the lower amounts. It is amazing to see that five TEC dioceses took more than $1m each from the government.

I believe it was a simpler process for those diocese with a centralized payroll where the diocese could handle the project instead of each individual parish or mission.

Tom Sramek, Jr.

Keep in mind that much of this is likely on behalf of mission churches, who cannot apply separately. Also the list obviously doesn’t include parishes within dioceses.

Nothing for DioVA? Wow—given all the time and attention the matter has received on the clergy conference calls, I am more than a little suprised.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
