The funeral program was published on Wednesday, April 7, 2021. “His Excellency Monsignor Samuel Kleda, Metropolitan Archbishops of Douala, informs the entire Christian community, friends and acquaintances, that the funeral of His Eminence Christian Cardinal Tumi, will take place on April 19 and 20, 2021 in Douala. The detailed program of this celebration will be communicated to us later".
All employees will have automatic seniority pay increases frozen until 2023, except for lay employees with paygrade levels one to three.
This will only affect lay employees with paygrade level four and above, and not those with the lowest salaries. Vatican pay grades go from levels 1-10 for most employees.The reductions will not be applied in exceptional cases where health expenses are involved. These measures will be applied also by the Vicariate of Rome; the Chapters of the Papal Basilicas of San Pietro in Vaticano, San Giovanni in Laterano and Santa Maria Maggiore; the Fabbrica di San Pietro; and the Basilica of San Paolo fuori le Mura. Cardinals who work at the Vatican and there are believed to get salaries of about 4,000-5,000 Euros a month ($4,725-$5,907). Many live in subsidised accommodation. Most priests and nuns who work at the Vatican have small allowances - but live in religious houses, parishes or schools, so most of their expenses are covered. The Pope does not receive a salary - but all his expenses are paid.
