It is widely known that vocations to the priesthood seem to be growing in many southern states, but still suffering in many other places. This is confirmed by a report that the Diocese of Raleigh will ordain six men soon. This is the highest number since 1956. This is great news.
On a side-note, Fr. David (Director and Pastor of St. Mary's) visited the Raleigh diocese to work with them in increasing vocations. He should know. St. Mary's has more than 20 people who have and will enter formation for the priesthood and religious life in the last two years alone.
