Canada’s Churches Dying Off
From Catholic News Service: “National Trust: One-third of Canada’s churches to close within 10 years.” That is a massive loss, especially when both immigration and the native population are increasing.
The article makes little attempt to identify either the nature or the causes of the losses. Since Catholics comprise about 67% of the population, their churches are obviously taking the biggest hit, but the article gives no clue to proportionality. Catholic Europe has been undergoing similar, and perhaps greater losses. So it goes.
