Fr Javier’s salary is £9,900 (plus free lodging at the Presbytery). The parish pays him only £8,250 (the Seminary pays the rest, £1,650). This money is paid from the donations for Baptisms, Funerals, Weddings and Masses alongside the collections on Christmas and Easter day. The Sunday collection pays for the running of the parish expenses.
This year has been really difficult for all due to the current Pandemic. The Parish has also been affected: the Church had to be closed for a large period of time during the lockdowns and consequently has also seen a fall in numbers of parishioners attending Church. Weddings and Baptisms had to be cancelled; all resulting in a drop of income for the Parish.
Your donations toward the upkeep of the clergy will be very much welcomed.
You can contribute to the Christmas collection on the day, by using the attached envelope or by donating online via:
