The priests are looking for fellow members: Hard to recruit

with Less trains and more and more retires. Prästbristen is great and The three pins in Gothenburg, Skara, Karlstad, sweden there is a lack of close to 100 to a range of services, some of the SVT News of the West, was first reported in the. According to the news media, the total number of prästtjänster of the three prongs of the 700.

"It has been difficult to recruit in rural areas, but now it's become very difficult to recruit even in the big cities," says Maria Ottensten, vicar-general of the Nylöse parish in the north of Gothenburg, sweden.

and, She says, that fewer and fewer people are looking for prästyrket.

" It's a bad flow, and at the same time, shifting things over a period of time. When I was working with a prästrekrytering for the next 10 to 15 years ago, there was a lot that wanted to be a priest. We were concerned as to whether everyone was able to get a job, even a second time.

over a decade, the situation has changed considerably. Maria Ottensten think it depends on a lot of factors.

" There is nothing radical has happened in the past. It's just that the shortage of priests has become more and more of the time. Things can shift over time. The church's position in society is different, and there are many people who leave the church. In the future, it will not be an equal number of churches to be found. Not as many people are baptized or married. It plays also a role.

another aspect to consider is to get young people training to be priests, and in its place is often a little bit older, and people who want to change the trajectory of their lives.

" There tends to be this ”second profession”. It learns when you're 30, 40 or 50 years of age and a change in the track somewhere in the middle of my life. This means that many of the retired priests are allowed to dive into. They will be like the game on the plains. Fit seniors will be called all the time by parsons, who asks them to be his stand-in, " Maria says.
