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.
That’s a 10% jump from last year, when it was 440.And it’s an even more sizable jump from 2008, there were 401.
Things are looking up.
