It's like pennies from heaven for St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Moorhead.

Well, more like greenbacks.


About 150,000 of them.

That's what Moorhead Public Service paid the church after it was discovered the utility had been overbilling St. Joe's for electricity for about 14 years.

Parish Administrator Mike Heinzen is quick to say the utility wasn't to blame for the error.
