The parish priest of the Sant Jaume de Lleida parish, Daniel Turmo, asked the faithful who attended Sunday Mass for money this Sunday to pay the last electricity bill, which exceeds two thousand euros, the priest has informed Europa Press.
Turmo pointed to the possibility of cutting electricity spending by reducing the parish’s opening days and limiting them only to Sundays. Daniel Turmo has specified that this latest electricity bill is much higher than the income that the parish has, which he arrived at only three months ago.
As explained by the parish priest, the number of faithful who usually attend Masses weekly is around two hundred people. Last week the price of electricity in the wholesale market set a record and then gave a truce on Friday and the weekend.
