"I fought it! "But there was an itch, an inkling in the back of my mind, towards the priesthood." So, after a short but successful career as features editor and rock music critic for a Bakersfield newspaper, Mark Stetz, 30, scratched that itch. Now a third-year theology student at St. John's Seminary in Camarillo, Stetz expects to be ordained a Roman Catholic priest in the Diocese of Monterey after he completes one more year of study and reflection.

Last year, only 10 men were ordained by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles--the nation's largest--where 1,280 priests served 2.7 million Roman Catholics. That is only one priest for every 2,151 Catholics, the lowest ratio of priests to parishioners of any archdiocese in the country. And the challenge steadily grows more difficult: This year, vocations directors say, only five or six men will be ordained by the Los Angeles archdiocese.
