SALARY AND PENSION FOR PRIESTS
This information is being provided so that changes might be reflected in budgets being prepared for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2019.
The base salary for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2019 will be increased from the current base of $2,578.00 to $2,630.00 per month ($31,559.00). This increase of 2% was approved by Archbishop Schnurr. The annual seniority increment is unchanged from the previous fiscal year and remains at $201.00 per year. The limit on professional ministerial expenses of active priests is $2,500.00 per year.
The Archdiocese, like most institutions, has been challenged by the effects of the current economic conditions. Nevertheless, the Archbishop has approved a modest wage increase this year. (Please note that Archdiocesan policy indicates that if priests wish to give back their salary, they are free to do so, but they are not free to turn down the salary completely).
