Hi Doris, I apologize for going off-topic here but do you remember the name of the recent (fiction?) book about the coal mining town? I am so upset about the accident in WVA and it's gotten me thinking of this book and wishing now I'd jotted down the name and author. Thanks!
Oh,as far as your question today: I think a diocesan priest gets a small stipend from the diocese but does also depend on local offerings and a priest from a specific order (i.e. Jesuit, Franciscan etc) would get their stipend from their order but also depend on locak collections. Correct me if I'm wrong anybody!
