The supply clergy compensation rate for 2013 is as follows
Sunday/primary liturgy* One liturgy $220; additional consecutive liturgies $50 each.
*Sunday/primary liturgy includes liturgies falling on other days that require significant preparation duties, such as Christmas, Holy Week liturgies, parish feast days, significant Saturday or Sunday evening liturgies. Congregations and supply clergy should clarify for such liturgies when making an agreement for service.
$85 for evening/weekday liturgy
Supply clergy called upon to perform additional duties (pastoral care, teaching, etc.) shall be compensated at a minimum rate of $25 per hour for preparation and performance of said duties, to be negotiated in advance. Standard IRS business mileage rates and direct transportation costs, such as ferries, etc. shall be reimbursed. Reimbursement for lodging and meals must be negotiated in advance. Negotiation of rates below this minimum under special circumstances requires approval of the Bishop. These are minimum standards. Supply clergy and congregations may negotiate higher compensation rates. Nothing herein precludes supply clergy from donating their services.
