The Archdiocese of Boston, facing a budgetary crisis, said yesterday that it will lay off seven administrative employees and eliminate four positions that are vacant. That will lower the number of archdiocesan employees to 281 from 367 in 2002. In a memo to employees yesterday, the archdiocese said employees will get an average 1.75 percent salary increase in the fiscal year that begins July 1, in a further effort to control costs. The budget crisis has largely been caused by a reduction in contributions from parishioners following the clergy abuse crisis.
