Diocese of Metuchen No Stranger to Difficult Economic Choices

| 9 Comments

The economic difficulties of this past year have not overlooked religious factions, according to a report in the Home News Tribune. The Diocese of Metuchen, whose seat is literally in town, has established salary and hiring freezes while asking all administrative departments to cut budgets by 5 percent. The diocese's investment income sits at a 30 percent loss and their endowment fund dropped from $68 million to $47 million throughout the last year. The salary freeze will affect all diocese priests and religious staff.

You don't need big beautiful churches to meet with your God.

rich as stink

Boo hoo.

As stink? Yikes, you're an angry person.
And no matter what you want to think about Rome, the nuts and bolts of local churches cost a great deal and many are closing because they can't maintain the property, can't afford the huge fuel expenses, etc. At this rate, local places of worship will be a memory - people will be traveling to big, regional centers. It's sad.

CONFISCATED artwork and artifacts? Did you know The DaVinci Code is FICTION?

Sitting on stacks of gold in Vatican City, plus all that artwork and the other artifacts they confiscated over the years.

Catholic church is rich as stink. Let them help their own for a change.

Oh man, if God's having financial problems what chance do the rest of us have?!
