Question about job as sexton
« on: October 03, 2016, 02:21:56 PM »
There is free position in one of the churches in the city as sexton. The money are not much. The priest is very strict and I don't have enough strength for much working. Also I like more the other church that I regulary visit. Do you think I should go to that position?

You should ask yourself, maybe the best we can do is praying that you have wisdom to make the best choice for yourself.
"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

Anyhow when God was asked he said Eastern Orthodox is true Church and not Catholic Church. So come home and enjoy.

He is selling candles, cleaning the church inside, also outside in the yard he is working and helping to the priest.

Sextons usually assist the priest with the maintenance / cleaning of the Church.

I'd never heard this word or its Portuguese translation being used in Orthodoxy.
"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

It is 8 hours per day, 7 days in the week and the minimal monthly reward for the country is 230 EUR. On this position you receive 100 EUR per month. I have not decided yet.

100 Euro? For working full-time + weekends? What is that, a cotton plantation in XIX-century Mississippi?

100 Euro wage for slave or tenant farming is pretty good.
