At their plenary session on June 14-15, 2011 Slovak Bishops´ Conference agreed on the fact that the amount of the offering given for the celebration of the Mass will raise from €3,32 up to €5. The decision is mandatory for all dioceses. 

The change has been in force since July 1, 2011. Until that time, the decision of Slovak Bishops' Conference took effect from 20th plenary session in 1996. The amount of the offering was set 100 SKK. After transition of Slovak Crown to EURO, this sum was converted to €3,32. 
Bishops also mentioned Code of Canon Law, accoring to which a priest “is permitted to accept for the application of a Mass a voluntary offering which is larger or even smaller than the one defined” (Can. 952, §1). According to Code it is also recommended to priests that they celebrate Mass for the intention of the Christian faithful, especially the needy, even if they have not received an offering. Code of Canon Law concludes: “A priest who celebrates several Masses on the same day can apply each to the intention for which the offering was given, but subject to the rule that, except on Christmas, he is to keep the offering for only one Mass and transfer the others to the purposes prescribed by the ordinary, while allowing for some recompense by reason of an extrinsic title” (Can. 951, §1). 
Slovak version
According to Anton Ziolkovský, Executive Secretary of Slovak Bishops’Conference, it is a good idea to remember that during the past years the average monthly wage has increased in Slovakia, so there is a difference in the value of the one hundred crown banknote in 1990s and now. “Paradoxically, churchgoers from eastern and northern regions of Slovakia are more generous when giving offerings than in western parts. Furthermore, €5 and many times more has become a standard offering since Euro implementation.“
