Our pastor is quite young - I'm guessing early 40s. We have a deacon (final year before entering the priesthood) who is in his 30s. Another priest just joined our parish and he is in his late 40s - became a priest five years ago. Finally, we have a "summer" priest who is in his late 80s. So overall, we have a fairly "young" parish.

Our parish priest is 41 - We know many younger and (much!) older priests though.

Our priest is 75, I think, or around there. And our deacon is in his 60's.

One of our priests is probably in his late 30's/early 40's and our pastor is probably in his early 50's although I admit I am very bad at guessing ages.

Our pastor is in 60's, and the assistant priest is 32. We're getting two new ones though, my best guess at their ages is in their 40's.

One is younger than me- I'm 32. He came to our parish 2 years ago. He has a very thick Bostonian accent. I love hearing him speak. The other priest is in his late 40's. So, they're both kind of young (relatively).
