  1. Take the statistics with a grain of salt. According to the Toronto Archdiocese's statistics on their web site, divinding claimed Catholics by parishes gives an average of 8500 Catholics per parish. The Archdiocese of Los Angeles is nearly twice that at 16000 Catholics per parish. I would guess that the actual number is a quarter or that.

  2. Active participation in institutional religion is decreasing as a percentage of population, everywhere in the World, except sub Saharan Africa, where it is primarily a political and cultural expression.
