[quote:1nxtlogg]Maybe, if they consider having optional celibacy they could consider having married priests as only associate ministers. That way there would still be the pastor, not married, but able to devote all of his time to his church instead of balancing between a family and the church. The associate ministers would have less of a role obviously, but would still be priests. [/quote:1nxtlogg]
That is an idea that I did not think of before either.
I think it would help priest to have a pastoral-based role, instead of more of an administrative-based role in the parish.
What if deacons were hired to do the administrative tasks?
