FOREWORD 

The Year Book of the Churches succeeds the Federal Council 
Year Book and will be issued annually. 

The Directory of Religious Bodies includes all denominations 
recognized by the Federal Census. The Directory of Inter- 
church Bodies contains three times the number of organizations 
formerly treated. Most of these bodies publish Year Books with 
other data of value. 

Part II, General Information, is largely given to information 
connected with the war. 

The directories and statistics are official. The statistics con- 
cerning Churches and Sunday Schools are reprinted from the 
United States Census Bureau findings and are offered in com- 
parison with the Census of religious bodies made by the Federal 
Bureau of the Census ten years ago. 

The treatment of the cooperation of the Churches and Inter- 
Church Bodies officially in the Federal Council of Churches of 
Christ in America, is especially significant because the war has 
increased the necessity of federating religious activities. Books 
of value in nearly every phase of Christian work, published by 
the Federal Council, are listed as a bibliography. 

The general arrangement will be the same in future volumes 
as in this one, but it is expected that additional material will be 
offered in successive issues. 

Each division of the book is preceded by a table of the 
material treated, which, with the table of contents of the book 
and the complete cross index, will enable the reader to find every 
topic readily. 

Further information will be sent as requested. 

Suggestions for improvements that can be made in the 1919 
issue are desired. 

The Editor.

Address Rev. S. B. Mickiewiez, 156 Garden St., Lawrence,

LUTHERAN BODIES 

There is no ecumenical organization of Lutheran bodies. In 
Germany the greater number of Lutheran Churches were united 
with the Reformed Churches in the German Evangelical State 
Church, the so-called Prussian Alliance. There are, however, 
several independent Lutheran bodies, such as the Old Lutherans 
of Prussia. 

In the United States the Lutheran bodies are evangelical, 
but are classed as General Bodies and Independent Synods. 

GENERAL BODIES 
The General Synod, United Synod, South, and the General 
Council have a joint committee working toward union.

INDEPENDENT SYNODS 
The Finnish Apostolic Church is not included by some 
authorities with the Evangelical Lutheran bodies. The Je- 
hovah Conference is rather an association of ministers than 
an organization of churches. The Church of the Lutheran 
Brethren while regarded as evangelical is on so different an 
ecclesiastical basis that it is not ordinarily included in the 
Lutheran Year Books.

Purpose of this organization : To provide social and recrea- 
tional facilities for all soldiers and sailors irrespective of race 
or creed and to provide for the religious wants of Catholic 
soldiers. Buildings have been erected in the cantonments and 
encampments where the men are provided with all possible club 
conveniences, including stationery and libraries, and where enter- 
tainments, including dramatic productions, concerts, lectures, and 
athletic events are held at frequent intervals. On Sundays these 
buildings serve as chapels and Catholic services are held at con- 
venient hours. This work will also be duplicated abroad, both 
in the concentration camps and at the front. The naval train- 
ing stations are included among the encampments and canton- 
ments.

STATISTICS OF RELIGIOUS BODIES 

The Bureau of the Census has recently completed a compilation 
of the statistics of religious bodies and Sunday schools in con- 
tinental United States as of the close of the year 1916. It is 
reproduced in the following pages. It covers numerous items 
of inquiry, and the full report, to be published in the near 
future, will afford comprehensive information regarding more 
than 200 denominations, and will give, in addition, comparative 
statistics for 1906 and 1890. The statistics have been collected 
mainly by correspondence with the local church organizations, 
for the most part directly by the Bureau of the Census, but for 
certain denominations through some denominational officer or 
representative. The following figures, therefore, are based mainly 
upon actual returns from the individual churches and, although 
some churches failed to make returns as requested, the figures may 
be said to represent a substantially complete report. They were 
prepared under the supervision of Mr. William C. Hunt, chief 
statistician for population in the Bureau of the Census. 

Church Organizations 

The term "church organization" includes any organization for 
religious worship which has a separate membership, whether 
called a church proper, congregation, meeting, society, mission, 
station, or chapel, etc. 

The total number of church organizations in 1916 was 228,007, 
as reported by 201 denominations, counting the independent 
miscellaneous congregations as the equivalent of one denomina- 
tion. The report for 1906 showed a total of 212,230 organiza- 
tions as reported by 188 denominations, and that for 1890 a 
total of 165,151, as reported by 145 denominations. 

The difference in the number of denominations in 1916, as 
compared with 1906, is the net result of the consolidation or 
dropping out of 16 small denominations and the addition of 29 
small denominations, the latter including those actually in ex- 
istence in 1906, but not then brought to light; those resulting 
from the consolidation of churches, many of which were re- 



174 Year Book of the Churches 

ported in 1906 as "independent"; and those resulting from re- 
organization within existing denominations. 

The small increase in the number of church organizations since 
1906 is due to a general tendency toward consolidation and con- 
servation rather than expansion, and to shrinkage and dis- 
integration consequent on migration among the poorer and 
immigrant people, especially in the South and West. The large 
increase from 1890 to 1906, on the other hand, was due to more 
thorough investigation and more nearly complete returns in 
1906, to heavy immigration, and to a general effort toward de- 
nominational expansion. 

Church Members 

The term "members" has a variety of uses. In most Protestant 
bodies it is limited to communicants or confirmed members; in 
the Roman Catholic, Eastern, and some other churches it includes 
all baptized persons, while in some bodies it covers enrolled 
persons. 

The whole number of members reported by all religious bodies 
for 1916 was 42,044,374, as compared with a total for 1906 of 
32,936,445, and for 1890 of 20,597,954 members. These figures 
show an apparent increase in church members since 1906 of 
9,107,929, but allowance must be made for the difference in the 
membership of the Roman Catholic Church, as given for 1916, 
as compared with the figures used in the reports for 1906 and 
1890. The membership of the Roman Catholic Church covers, 
as above stated, all baptized persons, including infants; but in 
the reports for 1890 and 1906 a deduction of 15 per cent was 
made to cover those under nine years of age, as this was under- 
stood to be the age at which the first communion is usually 
taken ; but no similar deductions were made for the Eastern and 
other churches having a similar basis of membership, because 
of the very much smaller numbers involved. In providing for 
the present census of religious bodies, however, it was decided, 
after most careful consideration, to credit each denomination 
with its total membership, irrespective of the varying conditions 
of membership, whether of age or otherwise. On this basis of 
deduction, the total reported membership of the Roman Catholic 
Church for 1890 (7,343,186) was reduced to 6,241,708, and that 
for 1906 (14,210,755) to 12,079,142. This made a difference for 



Statistics 175 

1906 of 2,131,613, and, if this deduction had not been made in 
the report for that year, the total membership of all religious 
bodies for 1906 would have been 35,068,058, indicating an increase 
for the ten years from 1906 to 1916 of 6,976,316, or 19.9 per 
cent. On a similar basis, the total membership of all religious 
bodies for 1890 would have been 21,699,432, representing an in- 
crease for the sixteen years from 1890 to 1906 of 13,368,626, 
or 61.6 per cent. 

Of the separate denominations, the Roman Catholic Church re- 
ports the largest membership, namely, 15,742,262, out of a total 
membership reported by all religious bodies for 1916 of 42,044,374, 
or 37.4 per cent. Besides the Roman Catholic Church, there 
are eight other denominations for each of which more than 
1,000,000 members were reported in 1916, as follows : 

Baptists — Northern Convention 1,227,448 

Baptists — Southern Convention 2,711,591 

Baptists — National Convention (Colored) 3,018,341 

Disciples of Christ 1,231,404 

Methodist Episcopal 3,718,396 

Methodist Episcopal, South 2,108,061 

Presbyterians in the U. S. A 1,613,056 

Protestant Episcopal 1,098,173 

These eight denominations and the Roman Catholic Church to- 
gether comprised 32,468,732, or 77.2 per cent of the entire mem- 
bership reported for all religious bodies in 1916. 

The three branches of Baptists together comprised 6,957,380 
members, but if all seventeen Baptist bodies are included the total 
Baptist membership is increased to 7,236,650. Similarly, the two 
principal Methodist bodies together comprised 5,826,457 mem- 
bers, but if all Methodist bodies, seventeen in number, are in- 
cluded, the total Methodist membership is increased to 7,165,986. 
The Presbyterian Church in the U. S. A., as shown by the above 
summary, is credited with 1,613,056 members, but including the 
other nine Presbyterian bodies the total Presbyterian member- 
ship in 1916 was 2,257,439. As shown on page 180 the twenty-one 
Lutheran bodies, as a whole, had a total membership of 2,463,265, 
of which 777,438 was reported for the Synodical Conference 
alone and 535,108 for the General Council. 

The membership herewith reported for the Jewish Congrega- 



176 Year Book of the Churches 

tions requires some explanation. Some congregations reported 
as members all who contribute to the treasury of the congre- 
gation and not infrequently included women and children. The 
more orthodox, on the other hand, reported only those males 
who have incorporated the institution or have bought a share 
or membership in it, but do not recognize as members those who 
are regular attendants or are even contributors. The member- 
ship thus reported represents a total for 1916 of 359,998 persons, 
but this figure is not comparable with that given for 1906 
(101,457), which then comprised heads of families only. 

Ministers 

The number of ministers listed in this report is the result 
of information secured from various authoritative sources, either 
from published reports or through correspondence with repre- 
sentatives of the several denominations. In general, they include 
only those who are duly authorized to administer the sacra- 
ments and to perform all of the usual functions of the ministry, 
whether or not in active service as pastors in charge of 
churches. 

The whole number of ministers, as reported for the various 
denominations having regularly ordained ministers, was 191,722 
in 1916, as compared with 164,830 in 1906, and 111,036 in 1890. 

Sunday Schools 

The statistics of Sunday schools for 1916 are given and in- 
clude only those Sunday schools which are conducted by church 
organizations. They are derived, as before stated, from the 
returns for the individual churches in the various denomina- 
tions. 

Of the 228,007 church organizations for 1916, a report as to 
Sunday schools was made for 185,935, or 81.5 per cent. In 1906 
there were 167,574 church organizations for which Sunday 
schools were reported, representing 79 per cent of the total 
number of church organizations covered by that census, namely, 
212,230. 

The whole number of Sunday schools reported by the 185,935 
church organizations in 1916 was 195,276, with 1,959,918 officers 
and teachers and 19,951,675 scholars. The report for 1906 gave 



Statistics 177 

a total of 178,214 Sunday schools, with 1,648,664 officers and 
teachers and 14,685,997 scholars. 

In addition to the Sunday schools conducted by church or- 
ganizations, there are a large number of undenominational and 
union Sunday schools, and statistics of these Sunday schools 
were secured for 1916, as was the case in 1906, through the 
agency of the International Sunday School Association. The 
total number of undenominational and union Sunday schools 
thus reported for 1916 was 12,513, with 89,375 officers and 
teachers, and 618,156 scholars. The full strength of the Sunday 
schools of the country, both denominational and undenomina- 
tional, for 1916 is represented by a total of 207,789 Sunday 
schools, with 2,049,293 officers and teachers and 20,569,831 
scholars. The equivalent figures for 1906 were 192,722 Sunday 
schools, 1,746,074 officers and teachers, and 15,337,811 scholars.

Note.— The Gain Per Cent is given only when the data for 1917 exceeds that for 1916. The apparently 
large increase in operating expenses is due to the new form of the Annual Report Blanks, which include monies 
expended for several kinds of Association features not heretofore included in such reports, as dormitories, 
restaurants, miscellaneous items. The apparently large increase in the expense of supervision for State and 
Canadian Committees is due to the fact that several such committees reported for 1917 but did not report 
for 1916. The general tabular form of these summaries is similar to that used by the United States Govern- 
ment.

ITS NATURE AND SCOPE 

The Federal Council held its first meeting at Philadelphia in 
1908 and was largely the culmination of previous voluntary 
federative movements, the chief of v^^hich had been the Evan- 
gelical Alliance and the National Federation of Churches and 
Christian Workers. The important preliminary work leading 
up to the organization was accompHshed by the Inter-Church 
Conference on Federation held in Carnegie Hall, New York City, 
in 1905, a body composed of official delegates from thirty de- 
nominations convened through the initiative of the National 
Federation of Churches and Christian Workers. This confer- 
ence adopted the Constitution of the Federal Council and trans- 
mitted it to the various denominations with the understanding 
that approval by two thirds of them would give it full effect. 
This approval was secured early in 1908. 

The difference between the Federal Council and the previous 
movements is that it is not an individual or voluntary agency, 
or simply an interdenominational fellowship, but is an officially 
and ecclesiastically constituted body. 

It is differentiated from other general movements for the 
manifestation of Christian unity in the fact that it is the coopera- 
tion of the various denominations for service rather than an 
attempt to unite them upon definitions of theology and poHty. 

It does not interfere with the autonomy of these bodies and 
its Constitution specifically states that "The Federal Council 
shall have no authority over the constituent bodies adhering to 
it; but its province shall be limited to the expression of its 
counsel and the recommending of a course of action in matters 
of common interest to the churches, local councils, and individ- 
ual Christians. It has no authority to draw up a common creed 
or form of government or of worship, or in any way to limit 
the full autonomy of the Christian bodies adhering to it." 

The basis, scope, and limitations of the Council are indicated 
by the preamble to the Constitution, which reads as follows: 
*Tn the providence of God, the time has come when it seems 
fitting more fully to manifest the essential oneness of the Chris- 
tian churches of America, in Jesus Christ as their Divine Lord 



210 



Year Book of the Churches 



and Savior, and to promote the spirit of fellowship, service, and 
cooperation among them." 

I. The FEDERAL COUNCIL is thus constituted by thirty 
Protestant evangelical denominations, to express their common 
voice and unite them in cooperative activities. 

It includes 142,671 local churches, with 18,620,136 members. Its 
constituent Bodies, with statistics, are as follows :

Federal Council of Churches 211 

the constituent bodies, meets once a year, with additional special 
meetings. The Administrative Committee meets once a month. 

At its NATIONAL OFFICES in New York, under the direc-

tian life. A Publication and Printing Department of consider- 
able magnitude is maintained with adequate machinery for reach- 
ing the churches, and for the publication of volumes and 
pamphlets. 

The National Offices maintain a staff of about fifty persons 
engaged in this united work. 

A RELIGIOUS PUBLICITY BUREAU is now being de- 
veloped. 

The Council has local correspondents in every city of the 
United States, and has foreign correspondents connected with 
the Protestant churches of all the countries of the world. 

In addition to the meetings of its own Committees and 
Commissions, the Council calls frequent representative confer- 
ences upon matters of common interest to all the churches.

PERMANENT COMMISSIONS 

The following are the Permanent Commissions of the Federal 
Council, together with some description of their work: 

COMMISSION ON INTER-CHURCH FEDERATIONS 
(State and Local) 

Chairman Fred B. Smith 

Executive Secretary Rev. Roy B. Guild 

This Commission seeks, in every community having two or 
more churches, the development of some form of organization 
by which these churches can cooperate in doing for the reli- 
gious, social, and civic welfare of the community what they 
cannot by working independently of each other. 

It plans to do this by personal visitation, correspondence, and 
literature. It seeks to construct the machinery in the com- 
munity through which the Commissions of the Federal Council 
can function and through which the churches can work with 
other organizations. 

During the past year this Commission held a conference at 
Pittsburgh for the purpose of standardizing certain methods 
of work which have become successful features In the programs 



Federal Council of Churches 217 

of many federations, or are in the period of testing. The eight 
reports carefully prepared by eight sub-commissions are now 
published in "The Manual of Inter-Church Work." 

A special report of value to local churches, is printed sepa- 
rately — "War-Time Tasks of Every Church and Community." 

There has been a steady increase in the formation of local 
federations which have secured executive secretaries. Because 
of the strategic importance of such a secretary in developing 
the religious life of a city the Committee on the Securing and 
Training of Executive Secretaries, of which Mr. Harry Wade 
Hicks is the Chairman, is planning to hold this year a summer 
training school for employed and prospective secretaries and 
ministers and laymen who are interested in this work. Mr. 
Fred B. Smith, the Chairman of the Commission, while retain- 
ing his present business relations, will give practically all his 
time to the promotion of this work. 

COMMISSION ON EVANGELISM 

Chairman Rev. Charles L. Goodell 

Acting Executive Sec'y Rev. Asa J. Ferry 

This Commission aims to be of assistance to the churches 
in promoting evangelism and by eliminating the objectionable 
features associated with irresponsible evangelism. Twenty 
denominations now have commissions on evangelism, cooperat- 
ing to tell pastors where to secure dependable evangelistic help, 
to standardize the reports of results, and to develop the spirit 
and practice of personal and public soul-winning. 

COMMISSION ON THE CHURCH AND SOCIAL 
SERVICE 

Chairman President Henry Churchill King 

Executive Secretary Rev. Worth M. Tippy 

The purpose of the Commission is to cooperate with similar 
church organizations in the study and improvement of social 
conditions; to encourage the organization of departments or 
commissions of social service in denominations not so organized; 
to cooperate with the denominational agencies in organizing 
local churches for neighborhood and community service; to 
assist departments of social service in community federations 



218 Year Book of the Churches 

of churches; to cooperate in public welfare effort with national 
social movements and agencies, and with departments of the 
national and state governments; to labor to establish social 
justice, democratic institutions and a Christian international 
social order. 

The following denominations have social service organizations 
with executive or field secretaries: 

Baptist Churches, North: Department of Social Service and 
Brotherhood, Rev. Samuel Z. Batten, Secretary, 1701 Chestnut 
St., Philadelphia, Pa. 

Congregational Churches: Social Service Commission, Rev. 
Henry A. Atkinson, 14 Beacon Street, Boston, Mass. 

Methodist Episcopal Church: Federation for Social Service, 
Rev. Harry F. Ward, ^2 Mt. Vernon Street, Boston, Mass. 

Presbyterian Church in the U. S. A.: Rev. Paul Moore 
Strayer, Chairman of the Social Service Commission, 4 Meigs 
Street, Rochester, N. Y. 

Protestant Episcopal Church: Joint Commission on Social 
Service, Rev. Frank M. Crouch, Executive Secretary, The Church 
Missions House, 281 Fourth Avenue, New York City. 

Disciples of Christ: Commission on Social Service and the 
Country Church, Prof. Alva W. Taylor, Secretary, Bible College, 
Columbia, Mo. 

These tnen, with the Executive Secretary of the Federal Coun- 
cil Commission, compose a Secretarial Council formed to secure 
harmony of action. 

On February 15, 1917, the Commission reorganized with Rev. 
Worth M. Tippy as Executive Secretary. 

There has been constant and increasing cooperation with 
national and social agencies and movements, and most signifi- 
cant and unusual relations with departments of the national 
government. The Federal Council's relations with the Red 
Cross since the opening of the war have been under the direc- 
tion of the Commission and the Secretarial Council and arrange- 
ments have been completed with the Commissioner of Education 
in Washington for the organization of the churches for the 
Americanization of immigrants. 

The Commission has been steadily at work on the preservation 
of industrial standards during the war, particularly labor stand- 
ards, child welfare and the protection of the families of en- 
listed men. 

The Executive Secretary organized the work of the General 



Federal Council of Churches 219 

Committee on Army and Navy Chaplains, was Executive Secre- 
tary of the first Committee of the Churches on War Work, and 
is still acting as secretary of the Committee on War-Time 
Work in the Local Church and cooperation with the American 
Red Cross and of the Committee on Interned AHens and 
Prisoners of War — committees of the General War-Time Com- 
mission of the Churches. The General War-Time Commission 
has also requested the Social Service Commission to assume 
responsibility for organizing the churches to meet the social 
and religious needs of workers and their families who are con- 
gesting about war-time industries. An initial survey has been 
made and the findings reported to the joint meeting of the Home 
Missions Council and the Council of Women for Home Mis- 
sions. 

The Commission has also begun the organization of social 
service commissions in negro churches, aiming to reach local 
negro communities through their churches. Rev. R. R. Wright, 
Jr., has undertaken the task with the African Methodist Episco- 
pal Church. Initial community work has been begun at Newark, 
New Jersey, and Philadelphia. Friends of negro welfare look 
upon this plan with favor and hopefulness. The Commission is 
not as yet far enough completed to be listed. 

In addition to these important activities considerable atten- 
tion has been given to the pamphlet literature of the Commis- 
sion. With the assistance of Mr. Herbert N. Shenton, of 
Columbia University, this has been standardized and largely 
reissued. 

Full information relative to the work undertaken, may be 
found in The Year Book of the Church and Social Service, 
and in the volume entitled : "Christian Cooperation and World 
Redemption." 

COMMISSION ON THE CHURCH AND COUNTRY 

LIFE 

Chairman Gifford Pinchot 

Secretary Rev. Charles O. Gill 

104 North Third Street, Columbus, O. 

The Commission has assisted in the organization of a Rural 
Life Association in Ohio and a Committee of Interchurch Co- 
operation consisting of leading officials of eleven denominations, 



220 Year Book of the Churches 

to investigate and report upon conditions of country life as 
affecting the churches. A survey has just been completed cover- 
ing the country districts in Ohio, comprising an area of 40,000 
square miles. Most substantial results have been achieved in 
the forwarding of the movement for conservation and improve- 
ment of the country churches and rural life in Ohio, including 
the awakening of a strong desire among the farmers for Chris- 
tian cooperation in the small communities and a radical change 
in the program of many churches in a large area. The work 
of the Commission has already resulted in an important redirec- 
tion of home missionary activities. 

It is hoped that the work in Ohio will be repeated in other 
states, and that it will be followed by similar results. The 
work of the Commission is indicated in the volumes entitled,

literature, and the creation of public sentiment to ensure proper 
legislation.

Charles Stelzle, is in progress, making large use of the daily 
press through the country.

This Commission was established in response to memorials 
from missionaries in Japan, "to rally the Christian forces of the 
United States for the solution of American Oriental problems 
in accord with the highest standards of Christian Statesman- 
ship." 



Federal Council of Churches 223 

Its work is outlined in "The Church and International Rela- 
tions — Japan," one of the six volumes in the Library of Chris- 
tian Cooperation, and the volume "The Japanese Problem in the 
United States." 

The coming to the United States of Japanese special com- 
missioners and their remarkable reception, on the West coast 
as well as in the East, show that throughout the country a more 
sympathetic feeling toward Japan and her problems is apparent. 
While many factors have been at work, the contribution of this 
commission has been an important one.

" " Rev. Samuel McCrea Caver t 

Eric M. North 

This commission had its inception at a meeting of the Federal 
Council at Washington on May 8 and 9, 1917. The discussion 
at that meeting developed the fact that some representative com- 
mission would be needed to act on behalf of the churches in 
their effort to deal with the new problems raised by the war; 
and the Administrative Committee was authorized to take the 
necessary steps to bring this about. 

The purpose of the new commission was defined as follows : 

1. To coordinate existing and proposed activities and to bring 
them into intelligent and sympathetic relationship so as to avoid 
all waste and friction and to promote efficiency. 

2. To suggest to the proper agency or agencies any further 
work called for and not being done. 

3. To provide for or perform such work as can best be done 
in a cooperative way. 

4. To furnish means of common and united expression when 
such is desired. 

The spirit in which it approaches this task is expressed in 
the opening statement adopted by the commission at its first 
meeting — "The Commission will do its work in close coopera- 
tion with the existing agencies and commissions of the Federal 
Council, with the commissions or other war agencies in the vari- 



224 Year Book of the Churches 

ous communions, and with the interdenominational agencies al- 
ready at work. It will seek to serve them all as a clearing house 
of information and as an agency of sympathetic coordination. 
Its purpose is not to replace or duplicate, much less to check 
any activity directed toward dealing with the task which is too 
great for all the forces which can be brought to bear upon it. 
Its purpose is to support and strengthen all such influence in 
the fullest measure to the end that the churches may be able to 
render the largest service to the young men of the nation and 
to the nation itself in this great and critical time." 

The work and its range may be seen from the list of com- 
mittees : 

Committee on Survey of the Field and Work, Joint Com- 
mittee on Chaplains, General Committee on Army and Navy 
Chaplains, Committee on Equipment of Chaplains, Committee on 
Voluntary Chaplains, Committee on Camp Neighborhoods, Com- 
mittee on Health and Moral Conditions, Committee on Industrial 
Conditions, Committee on the Welfare of Negro Troops, Com- 
mittee on Interned Aliens, Committee on Investigation of Condi- 
tions in France, Committee on Conference with the Young Men's 
and Young Women's Christian Associations, Committee on War- 
Time Work in the Local Church and Cooperation with the 
American Red Cross, Committee on Conference with the War 
Camp Community Service, Committee on a Day of Penitence and 
Prayer, Committee on Literature and Publicity, Committee on 
a Church Flag, Committee on Finance, Special Committee to 
draft a Memorial to the President concerning National Prohi- 
bition as a War Measure. 

The volumes entitled "The Churches of Christ in Time of 
War" and the "Progress of Church Federation" and the "Annual 
Report of the Federal Council for 1917" contain full reference 
to the work undertaken.
