The Spring 2017 Mass Counts are to be conducted on the following 3 consecutive weekends: April 22-23, April 29-30, and May 6-7. 

Blank Mass count forms are not being mailed out. You need to download and save the Excel workbook to your own computer to complete your entries. After you have entered all of your counts into the workbook, make sure your parish and church names are recorded on the work sheets, and email the entire workbook to LWATSON@CAMDENDIOCESE.ORG.

Spring 2017 Mass Count Form

All parishes should follow the same set of instructions in conducting the Mass counts:


  • Download and save the Excel workbook to your computer: click the Mass count form button above, and save it to your computer. Select the “save as” option and rename the workbook with your parish name. E.g.- “St. Benedict Mass count” Do not change the file format.

  • This Excel workbook has 5 tabs labeled “Church 1, Church 2”, etc., for up to 5 different worship sites. You must put each of your worship sites on a different tab.

  • Click on the tab labeled “Church 1” and put the name of your parish and church in the appropriate spaces. If you have more than one worship site, click on the next tab and add information as needed.

  • Put only 1 church’s count on each form, even if only one Mass is said there.

  • Fill in the Mass schedule in the “Mass Time” column.

  • Fill in the language used at Mass, if not English. Blank spaces are assumed to be English, but please fill in the “Language” column for non-English Masses.

  • Don’t estimate! Please count every person attending each mass on all 3 weekends.

  • Completed Excel workbooks should be returned to the Pastoral Planning Office by May 12. Please email your Mass count to: LWATSON@CAMDENDIOCESE.ORG. Please do not email pdf files, scanned forms, or mail or fax paper forms.

  • If you need assistance with any of these steps, please email or call 856.583.2843. Mass counts sent as pdf files, scanned images, or forms sent by fax or regular mail won’t be accepted.
