A recent story on the Church in Wales highlighted a problem that solutions are being sought for. Several priests are nearing retirement age, with few prospects for new, younger candidates for ordination. However, the church is starting a campaign to help combat this issue, including a special website for vocations in the Church of Wales.
What do you think causes so few to seriously consider whether there’s a call to the ordained ministry? Do you think the discernment process in some dioceses/churches is a large hindrance for some?
