Over at Catholic Vote, Thomas Peters is touting some interesting statistics about this year’s class of ordinands. The USCCB has been publishing a report on men being ordained as priests for the last 15 years.
A little Googling, though, reveals a little more.
This year, according to the USCCB, 480 men are to be ordained in the United States.
And it’s an even more sizable jump from 2008, there were 401.
Things are looking up.
