Father Knott writes that the newly ordained are often not prepared during their seminary training on how to be members of a diocesan presbyterate. “It seems to be taken for granted that the newly ordained will pick that up by osmosis or that individual dioceses will tend to that matter,” he states. A few chapter topics include: What is a Presbyterate? Why Do We Need Intentional Presbyterates? and A Sample Presbyteral Assembly. A helpful book for all diocesan priests. (2003, Sophronismos Press).
