Pray for those out of work:

A St. Louis Archdiocese official has confirmed that 25 part-time and full-time employees were laid off late last week.

All the layoffs came within the curia, the agencies and offices of the archdiocese that assist the archbishop in his pastoral and administrative duties. Those departments include the communications, human resources office and finance offices.

In November, the archdiocese said its revenue dropped 37 percent in 2008 because of decreases in investment income and contributions. Those numbers reflected a fiscal year that ended June 30, a couple months before the worst of the economic crisis hit in the autumn.

The Archdiocese is closed today because of the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday, but keep checking STLToday.com for updates as we can get them.
