I would have to guess that they are real priests. Only 1 of the links you posted state that REAL priests or actually…Seminarians…or Wannabe’s as I call them…are used in the photoshoots.

Why are you asking? I am not really sure what you are trying to get at

The blog post you cite is from 2008, and the calendars have been sold since 2004, so I would think that if they were not actually priests or seminarians that the claim would have been debunked by now.

Here is a recent article in an Irish newspaper which amounts to a casting call:

Thank you very much for your explanations. Hopefully, I can explain myself.

I found the following links/sites by accident and I was just wondering.

Even if these (or any) seminarians or Priests are good looking I think it's inappropriate to think of them as "hot" "hunky" or "sexy"

If in fact, they are "real" seminarians and Priests it is truly awesome what they are doing--Serving God and His people.

Probably real.. We pretty people can be religious too, yer know.:whistle:
