'Leaders of the continuing diocese say at least 19 parishes and missions out of a total of 71, and six worship communities (typically groups from breakaway parishes) have indicated they are staying with The Episcopal Church. Others remain in a discernment period. Many more have decided to align with Lawrence: delegates from 49 parishes and missions voted to affirm disassociation from The Episcopal Church at a November convention organized by the breakaway diocese.'

About one-third of the canonically resident clergy in the Diocese have indicated they are leaving with Lawrence, though it is not clear how many have actually done anything about it.
