Supply Clergy

Supply Priests &  Available Non-Stipendiary (Diocesan) Priests
Last updated on October 1, 2020

Congregations are expected to reimburse the priest’s travel expenses at the current rate (50¢ per mile)  and overnight lodging where necessary. The diocesan standard honorarium is $150 per main Sunday service or funeral (plus $50 for graveside); $100 for graveside only; $50 for each additional Sunday and/or weekday service; $250, wedding.

These rates do not, of course, apply to parish priests who do not charge additional fees for the sacraments of the church, but only to those priests coming in to “supply” at a church they do not serve as Vicar, Rector, or other position whose compensation is set by a Letter of Agreement approved by the vestry and bishop.
