|Breakdown of Costs for the Women
In our women priests campaign we work almost entirely as volunteers who have freely given up payment for our services. Most members of our core team and our international cooperators work on a voluntary basis! Only one team member, our office administrator, receives a (small) salary because his full-time services are indispensable.
We incur expenses because we need to maintain a small central office where the core team can correlate the work of our world-wide volunteers and complete the editing of documents for inclusion on our website. The work requires research to identify suitable material, retrieve texts, scan them into the computer, obtain permissions, edit the texts on printing mistakes, convert the texts to html-format, and link the texts within the structure of our site. Our annual costs amount to £ 50,000 a year (= $ 80,000).
We offer here a breakdown of these annual costs based on our accounts of the last two years.Expenses of women priests project:
This website is maintained by the Wijngaards Institute for Catholic Research.
The Institute is known for issuing academic reports and statements on relevant issues in the Church. These have included scholars' declarations on the need of collegiality in the exercise of church authority, on the ethics of using contraceptives in marriage and the urgency of re-instating the sacramental diaconate of women.
You are welcome to use our material. However: maintaining this site costs money. We are a Charity and work mainly with volunteers, but we find it difficult to pay our overheads.
