What kind of free time does a priest get, and can he spend it how he wishes?

Because of the many demands on priests, creative and positive use of leisure time is a challenging task. Finding appropriate sports, fitness and leisure that genuinely invigorate and support ministry demands creativity and thought.  As a priest, the matter of how you use free time would be up to you, but you would have to balance whatever you choose with your regular priestly duties. Priests usually build in one complete day off in the week and have the same annual holidays as most other people.

It should be remembered that, as a priest, you are a public figure. For this reason your lifestyle and leisure time should reflect your commitment.
