From the Montclair (NJ) Times:
Parishioners sometimes come up to the Rev. John Perris after Sunday worship and pull him aside.
“I need to have a conversation with you. I have started to cut back,” they’ll say.
“Not everybody will tell me that they lost their job,” said Perris, pastor at St. James Episcopal Church on Valley Road. “But whether the economy is awful, or when there are other things happening, people are still coming to church.”
