Survey explores why Catholics leave Church (Pillar)

Although the total Catholic population of the US has risen by near two-thirds since 1960, the number of infant baptisms has fallen by more than one-half.

That is one of many revealing statistics produced by a survey of the country’s Catholics, commissioned by Pillar.
