It causes considerable hardship on the priest and his family especially if no severance or other help is offered (Fr. John received no severance). Keep in mind that a priest not only loses his income, but also insurance and any other benefit that goes along with the salary.
In order to make ends meet, Fr. John designs websites for Logos Web Services (we are partners), writes books and articles, serves as a substitute when openings are available, and other jobs. Presently he is between assignments and has no reliable income. Most people don’t realize that the Church does not offer any help to priests in this predicament.
Currently business is slow. Also, his truck just broke down ($1500 to repair it). His cash reserves are near empty and he needs some temporary help. I did not ask Fr. John’s permission to post this appeal because he would have told me not to do it. But he is a valued friend and if I had the money he needed I would give it. But I don’t have it. Hence this appeal.
