Church Jobs

Amid soaring unemployment in Spain the country's Roman Catholic Church has launched a campaign offering steady jobs as priests.
In an advertisement video posted on social networks such as YouTube, a series of priests announce the benefits of priesthood with the first saying he ``can't promise a great salary but I can promise a fixed job.''
The number of people entering the priesthood has dwindled drastically in recent years leaving many parishes without priests.

The average monthly wage for priests is around 800 euros ($1,045). Spain has a eurozone high unemployment rate of nearly 23 percent. The figure is expected to rise even further this year.
