JUNE 2008

The USCCB’s complementary legislation implementing canon 1292 §1 of the Code of Canon Law states that the maximum and minimum sums for the alienation of ecclesiastical goods are to be “linked to the consumer price index as determined annually by the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, and reported by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops to the appropriate offices of the Holy See and to the Conference members.”  Accordingly, the adjusted maximum and minimum sums now in effect are as follows:

Maximum: $11,397,000 for populations of 500,000 or more, $5,699,000 for all others (raised from $10,948,000 and $5,475,000 respectively),

Minimum: $1,140,000 for populations of 500,000 or more, $570,000 for all others (raised from $1,095,000 and $547,500 respectively),

For other juridical persons subject to the Diocesan Bishop the new maximum sum for alienation is $5,699,000 (raised from $5,475,000) and the minimum is $28,495 from $27,373) or 5% of the prior year’s ordinary annual income, whichever is greater.

For information regarding the extension of the recognitio for an additional two years, see
