Calendar aims to recruit Catholic priests

Monday, December 31, 2007

I saw this article on the BBC news site - I have some concerns over this - yes a bit of marketing is a fine thing to do but surely we should be spending more time talking about calling and encouraging teenagers to find their own calling be that in the church, teacher, football coach, police man etc.

Twelve Catholic priests have swapped their pulpits for favourite pastimes in a calendar designed to try to recruit young men to the priesthood ... The priests, from the Diocese of Leeds, are pictured in an array of activities, including reading celebrity magazines, watching baseball and DIY ... Each featured priest also reveals what inspired them to join the church ... The calendar has been created as part of a drive to encourage teenagers to take up Holy Orders.
