I plan to move to Paris from USA at end of year or next spring. I lived there in 1999 for six months. Are there many English speaking Catholic priests?

Thank you.

I meant one franc equal to $0.25 American. Today 1 euro equals $1.12. One bedroom apartment outside of New York City costs minimum $1,500 in medium to not-so-great Neighborhood. Better neighborhood can cost up to $3,000 average house price $750,000 average apartment price to buy two bedrooms no outside space $500,000 and taste of food is terrible compared to France.

Paris seems to have changed considerably, though food prices are much lower that living near New York City. When I live in Paris 1968 it cost me 135 Francs equal to $0.25 full cost to have a baby plus free medical care. In America at that time it would have cost over $2,500. In NYC area ground beef cost $6 for 1 pound roughly half kilo. Average price for inexpensive shoes roughly $100 4 women's shirt about $70. And Metro monthly pass $140. Healthcare in France is far cheaper then America and much better health care too. But here now due to Trump the very very rich pay no taxes while the rest of us pay high tax for nothing. Don't complain about high French tax at least you get things like healthcare with it.
