Fewer Priests

There are fewer priests in England and Wales, and this is now beginning to be felt, especially in some dioceses. Some priests have to look after a number of parishes, and it is not always possible to have Mass in every church every Sunday. Although the situation is still very good compared with somewhere like Latin America, the average age of priests in England & Wales is rising alarmingly. There are not enough new priests to replace those who die, retire or leave the active ministry.
