PERHAPS more alarming
By Fr. Wilson (articles ) | May 24, 2003
From "The Tablet," the pravda of my diocese, Brooklyn NY:
"The number of available, active priests in the Brooklyn diocese has declined 46% since 1979. Perhaps more alarming, nearly a quarter of those priests will reach retirement age in the next five years, 42% within the next ten, and 81% within the next twenty years."
Perhaps MOST alarming, I'm not even in that 81%!!
There's also a photo, in the current issue, of the ordination class. Both of them.
