Why is it that those dioceses where the bishop or archbishop does not seem to be afraid to speak out on doctrine and the truths of the Church, don’t seem to be suffering from the same vocations crisis that other dioceses are? In addition to 4 recently ordained priests, Kansas City has 3 new Transitional Deacons, 4 new Permanent Deacons and nearly 30 in the seminary. Prior to Bishop Finn, the number was less than a third of that. To all priests, deacons and seminarians who have responded to God’s call and to all bishops and archbishops who are providing real leadership – thank you!
