While it is uncommon for there to be a celibate priest from my experiences, most are widowers or men whose wives may have left them during the marriage. I don't think that it is fair to state that they are necessarily monastics. Most Bishops don't 'like' to ordain non-monastics as celibate priests from what I understand, but there are exceptions. And, for the record, I find comments which imply that somehow a monastic is a superior type of priest to a married man with a family to be ignorant and offensive. Most of the work that went into the establishment of Orthodox parishes in this country was done by married clergy not monastics. There is a place for all in the Church.
