MOSSLEY CORRESPONDENT – a few copies in the porch.
BISHOP JOHN WRITES – ‘ Over the past four years I have resisted any use of the phrase ‘shortage of priests’ in this diocese, because, compared with every country in the world, we have a good number of priests for what is, geographically, a small diocese. But we are seeing a reduction in the number of priests in pastoral ministry. In the last four years 24 priests have retired in this diocese and seven have died in active ministry. Those thirty one priests have been replaced by six newly ordained and the transfer of one priest into the diocese. This imbalance is clearly estimated to continue in the next few years as we see more priests retiring than those being ordained.’
BE CAREFUL – how you go on Halloween – broomsticks for sale on piety stall!
