In 2017 all French dioceses ordained only 84 priests. Nearly half of the active diocesan priests in France are over 75 years old. In 2015 there were 5410 active priests over and 6217 priests under 75 years old.

A quarter of all French priests ordained in 2017 belong to communities of the Old Rite. Le Figaro comments that the “traditionalist movement is no longer marginal”.
