The Catholic Church is doing great

Great news for the Catholic Church. So says Bill Donahue from the Catholic League. He quotes the findings of the "Emerging Models of Pastoral Lea" project, a collaborative effort with Georgetown University's Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate.

In the last 40 years, the Catholic population has increased by 75 percent; it has grown by 50 percent since 1990. More important, Catholic attendance at Mass is up 15 percent since 2000. And in the last five years, contributions have increased by 14 percent. It is also important to note that there has been a 40 percent increase in Latinos in the Church over the past five years.

Well that is in the US. I wonder what the figures are for the Caribbean?
