"In 2017, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby told the Church of England's General Synod that being a parish priest was the most stressful job be had ever had. 'It was isolated, insatiably demanding and I was on the whole working without close colleagues -- and that wears people down', said Welby, who has also worked as an executive in the oil and gas industry in addition to serving as most senior bishop of the Church of England". "To get a taste of current thinking on clergy wellness, the Anglican Journal spoke with the Rev. Laura Marie Piotrowicz, rector of St. John's Anglican Church in Lunenburg, N.S. Piotrowicz, who is currently in the midst of a doctor of ministry degree at the University of Toronto's Trinity College, intends to focus her research upon the relation before clergy burnout and prayer". Piotrowicz "focus is going to be on clergy who are in parish ministry and who have been in that ministry for about 10 years or less -- folks who are still early in their ministry -- finding out what role prayer plays in their daily life, how they feel after spending time intentionally in prayer, not necessarily the quantity of prayer so much as the quality of prayer. Do they find that prayer is sustaining them through their own personal dry spells ?".
