The restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic were tantamount to a shrinkage of the number of faithful in churches and the parish budget. Now, clergy are struggling with an energy crisis and galloping inflation. – We have gas heating in the church and parish house. Bills already jumped by nearly 300 percent at the beginning of this year. – says one of the priests from Małopolska in an interview with Onet. With further obstacles, concerns arose that the parish priests would not have enough money to pay their basic bills. The Metropolitan Archbishop of Krakow found a solution to the problem.

The church is fighting the crisis and is returning to the tax that was abolished in the 19th century

Archbishop Marek Jędraszewski on September 12 issued a decree which obliges each parish of the Krakow archdiocese to donate to the curia a tenth of the income from its activities.

– It is about additional revenues that individual parishes derive from the lease of real estate, shops or received in exchange for the fact that there are telecommunication masts on their premises – explained Onet the spokesman of the curia, Fr. Łukasz Michalczewski.

“The purpose of the tax is to cover diocesan needs, including those resulting from the principles of justice and solidarity, the need to support parish communities in a difficult financial situation in their mission of worship, charity and care, preservation of monuments or carrying out sacred investments and renovations” – he explains in the decree, Metropolitan Jędraszewski.

The spokesman for the curia explains the amount of the new tax (10 percent) with the reference to tithing from the Bible. Tithing was an Old Testament requirement that meant an offering to be made to God as an expression of gratitude and faithfulness. The tribute was withdrawn due to the separation of Church and State in the 19th century.

Will the new tax affect parishioners? That’s possible

The new tax could be severe on parishioners themselves. – It all depends on the parish, but when the costs increase for entrepreneurs, they pass them on to their clients. It is possible that some parish priests will want to raise the rates for the sacraments, one of the clergymen told Onet.

Fr. Tadeusz Isakowicz-Zaleski – an Armenian chaplain and a social activist – emphasized that in the curia’s activities he saw more of a desire to collect additional money than real help to parishes. – You need a real recovery plan. You have to think over how to remedy the bad financial situation, but at the same time consider whether all the curia’s expenses are justified – he commented. The new tax will apply from October.
