Ukrainian Seminaries Full, Turning Away Candidates


SAMBIR, Ukraine, FEB. 4, 2011 ( Ukrainian seminaries are having to turn away up to half of the young men seeking to become priests due to a lack of space.

Coadjutor Bishop Jaroslav Pryriz of the Eparchy of Sambir-Drohobych reported to Aid to the Church in Need that in some places, there are three candidates vying for every place in the seminary.

Is it me, or do you never hear of liberal Ukranian Catholics demanding the ordination of women?

I always thought Eastern Churches pretty no non-sense about doctrine (and especially liturgy!)

Perhaps this could explain the abundance of vocations.
