Plate & Pledge increased about 12 percent from 2002 though 2007 which was about 4 percent short of inflation. Not too bad, until you realize that Personal Income per Capita in New Jersey was the second HIGHEST in the USA.  Statmann

When you know that you are right, you know all is well. The people who have left just were not able to get with TEC inclusiveness. This is the story and they are sticking to it.

‘97-‘07 shows decline consistent with TEC as a whole, and maybe a little less. I’d be interested in seeing stats back to 1970, which would give us a broader picture of the diocese.
