Usually 5-10 men enter seminary in Switzerland every year.

But there is hope. In French-speaking Switzerland vocations are arising within the new ecclesial movements. One example is the recently formed Eucharistein community, founded in Switzerland by Nicholas Butteta, a former hermit. It already has two theology students at the University of Fribourg, and two are beginning their preparation for the priesthood. In Paris, meanwhile, two-thirds of the seminarians come from new movements. "The value of the priesthood is very strong in them," Father Fellay explained.

Here's the link to the Eucharistein community. It's in French.
