Calling it "a great sign of life and hope in the Church in the United States, despite the . . . uncertainty in the world brought by the Coronavirus pandemic," the U.S. Conference of Catholic bishops released its annual ordination report in April.

The report shows a continuation in ethnic and racial diversity in the priesthood. Of this year's 448 ordinands, 17 percent belong to religious orders (62 filled out the survey).

Learn more about the class of 2020 by reading the full report or viewing a cross-section of men to be ordained.
