Twelve years of accounts from the Bishopric of Almeria were summarized in a report of more than 130 pages which was presented on June 17 in Almeria.
The report of the Bishopric of Almeria was discussed in a meeting with the clergy which took place this morning at the House of Spirituality in Aguadulce and which was attended by more than 70 priests from all over the province as well as during an afternoon meeting with the financial council of the Diocese of Almeria, as reported by La Voz De Almeria.
The Bishop of Almeria, Antonio Gómez Cantero, has made public a letter in which the only official data for the moment is given:
“Our debt, only with financial institutions, is 23.918 million euros”, stressing that this is only debt with banks, the total amount being even greater.
“Although it is considerable, we are going to imagine a serious approach to be able to assume it”,
“Together, we must take the necessary steps to move forward. To do this, I will seek the help of a team of qualified people, which I will appoint later”, announces Gómez Cantero.
In addition to this, an evaluation was made of the properties whose direct owner is the Diocese of Almeria, assessing what their value could be both for sale and for rent, the most valuable being the seminary, the house of spirituality of Aguadulce and the house priesthood of San Juan de Ávila.
