The Diocese of New York recommends the following minimum compensation guidelines for Sunday supply priests: 1 regular service - $165.00 plus travel; 2 regular services - $235.00 plus travel. A regular service includes Holy Eucharist with Sermon OR Morning Prayer with Sermon. Travel includes all public transportation fares (with receipts) OR mileage at the standard IRS mileage allowance (56.5 cents per mile in 2013).
Statement of Pension assessment: "If supply clergy, who are active (that is, not retired and drawing pension benefits), earn $200 or more per month in salary and/or housing from the same congregation for three or more consecutive months, an assessment of 18% to the Church Pension Fund is mandated, retroactive to the first month."
