Reason #2: If We Just Ignore that Nasty Little Statistic, Perhaps It Will Go Away

from Transfiguration Today

Recent studies have determined that between 25% and 30% of American Catholics are at Mass on any given Sunday. (Statistics on Sunday Mass attendance vary a great deal by region: Catholics in western Kentucky and the Dakotas, for example, have been clocked at 75% - 80%. At the other end would be the Archdiocese of Boston, which reports attendance rates of 12% - 15%.)

Imagine truancy rates such as these in our schools. . . .
