Church Having Trouble Marketing Poverty And Celibacy To Men
St. Joseph's Seminary in Yonkers, NY is having trouble in the admissions department.
Fifty years ago, several hundred men at a time studied for the priesthood. Today, only 22 are enrolled. In an effort to attract suitable men to the priesthood, the seminary is trying new marketing techinques. St. Joseph's launched a website called nypriest.com and the archdiocese is hoping the Pope's visit provides a shot in the arm. Asks Reverend Luke Sweeney, "How do we get the 'cool' factor back into the priesthood?"
