CWN Editor's Note: 122 priests were ordained in France this year, down slightly from 130 in 2020 and 126 in 2021, but higher than the 80 to 100 men who were typically ordained each year between 1985 and 2010.

The highest numbers of ordinations were for the Community of St. Martin (14) and the Archdiocese of Paris (10). At the Vatican’s request, ordinations were postponed in the Diocese of Fréjus-Toulon.
