The fat cats and bureaucrats enriching themselves at the Boston Chancery (as they cry poor mouth and shutter parishes) are in the news this week at Boston Catholic Insider.
The salary of Sister Bathwater is twelve thousand more dollars per year than the salary of a priest who is operating three parishes.
The worst offender - get this - is the 'Secretary of Education', who is making close to Four Hundred Thousand Dollars a year.
They are boarding up Catholic Schools for lack of money, children graduate from high school without knowing their prayers, the teachings of the Church, without knowing the Divinity of Christ in the Eucharist - they wouldn't know the difference between Charlie Sheen and and the men preserving and reserving themselves for God and his wife - and the Secretary of Education draws... a Four Hundred Thousand Dollar salary?
I was also astounded by the salary of the "executive director of lay benefits" - close to two hundred thousand dollars. First of all, it's a bit of a bloated title for the lone crackerjack in the benefits office.
I wonder what they call the receptionist..the deputy director of Central Intelligence?
People are worried about unjust enrichment at the Bank of America and Wall Street?
You wonder, after a ten year tab of these sixteen employees: How many additional Churches will be shuttered, how many lay employees and priests will be screwed out of their pensions?
Stay tuned to Boston Catholic Insider as they unravel the stewardship of donations.
God bless Michael Voris and his staff for picking up on this story:
