Wanted: A few good men
MONSIGNOR Vincent Blackett is concerned about the falling numbers attending the local Roman Catholic church and that few men are coming forward to join the priesthood.
“We have a solid core; every weekend we still have four services but if you were to judge by the number of people who attend weekly Mass, one would have to say that numbers have fallen,” Blackett said yesterday.
“I am more than a little concerned. I am concerned in a major way about the church and its future.
“I am not seeing people coming forward in the (ordained) ministry,” he added. (MK)
