German Born Bernd Nilles, the director of Fastenopfer/Action de Carême, the relief organisation of the Swiss Bishops, makes 150'000 Sfr (USD168.000) a year, KTipp.ch (February 9) writes.
Basel Bishop Felix Gmür (yearly salary: CHF170.000), the president of the board of trustees, receives an expense allowance of CHF1000.
Nilles’ salary is “low” compared to the parish priest in the Canton of Zurich, Switzerland, who earn between CHF107,826 and CHF163,138. The regional Zurich vicar general makes CHF213,877.
Fastenopfer/Action de Carême and the Zurich clergy are almost without exception strong supporters of Francis and his “Church of the Poor.”
