Pastoral visit by invitation
During the coronavirus pandemic, many parishes changed the rules regarding priests’ visits during the Christmas and New Year period. As “Fakt” wrote earlier, one of the Warsaw parishes is waiting for the faithful to come to the office and express their willingness to receive Christmas carols. Otherwise, apartments or houses will be avoided.
“Gazeta Wyborcza” talked to residents of Silesia. One of them, Mr. Andrzej from Bielsko-Biała, confessed that he does not go to church. However, when he saw the altar boys at the door, he did not have enough courage to refuse. Mrs. Katarzyna, in turn, had to take leave to receive the priest.
— Just like I don’t refuse chimney sweepers when they come with a calendar. Although I associate both of them with acquisition, he said.
— I very rarely go to church, but once I even took special leave from work to attend Christmas carols. My parents always welcomed the priest, I couldn’t do otherwise, said Mrs. Katarzyna.

How much can a priest earn?
The change in carol singing rules is not that bad at all. If we report the need for a priest to come to us after Christmas carols, we will know that we care about it and it is not just out of politeness.
On the one hand, it is convenient for people who do not want to receive a priest, but on the other hand, the priest will not collect as much money as he used to. After all, Christmas carols contribute to the parish budget, so it is a kind of service that requires payment.
According to Wirtualna Polska, a big financial injection for the priest is not only the money from the plate, but also donations from the faithful, which they collect during Christmas carols. Priests have 20 percent to share. from the amount collected.
The remuneration for a priest’s service is estimated at PLN 2,000 to PLN 3,500. PLN gross per month. However, they can “earn” PLN 18,000 from the tray. PLN per month depending on the size of the parish. They have additional income from prayers for the dead and are able to gain approximately PLN 2,000. zloty.
