Supply Clergy Rates

The minimum compensation for supply clergy is:

  • $170 for one (1) service, plus $50 for each additional service on a weekend. The rate for a weekday service at a church or institution (e.g., nursing home, college chapel) is $50.  Mileage reimbursement at the annual IRS-approved rate is also provided.
  • Hourly compensation at a rate of $30/hour for pastoral visits or other parish duties. The first hour of travel time is not included in the hourly rate — if it takes more than an hour for the priest to go to and return home, the extra travel time is included in the hourly rate in addition to the mileage reimbursement.
