Even the Catholic Church is Outsourcing to India

From Ekklesia:

As US and European companies outsource hi-tech work to India to benefit from low-cost and abundant skilled labour, the clergy is doing likewise seeking to compensate for the acute shortage of priests in the West reports Sky News.

Foreign priests are reportedly shipping out “Mass intentions” — requests for services such as thanksgiving and forgiveness of sins — to congregations in India, with each earning a priest about five euros or six dollars.

The Mass intentions usually come by post or e-mail through the church, although some Indian priests take down the requests by telephone from friends and contacts made abroad.
