BBC kan fortelje at i fjor vart det ordinert 234 menn og 244 kvinner som prestar i Den anglikanske kyrkja. Altså fleire kvinner enn menn. Interessant.
The Church of England said 244 women were ordained, compared with 234 men.
Most of the women becoming priests in 2006 did not become full-time paid clergy, but took voluntary posts. (…)
In a separate set of statistics, the Church confirmed provisional figures from January showing average Sunday attendances fell below a million for the first time in 2005 to 988,000.
Average weekly attendance in that year  was 1.17 million, and average monthly attendance was 1.7 million.
Attendance at Church of England services on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day increased dramatically in 2005 – it was 7% higher than in 2001 at 2.8 million.
