THE AUSTRALIAN CATHOLIC CHURCH TODAY

2. Future Trends


Future Trends

? On current trends by 2016 the evangelical churches will overtake the Catholic Church in terms of Church attenders (Ruth Powell, National Church Life Survey, in BRW magazine, Charity Report July 2006).

? It is likely that a majority of Religious Education Co-ordinators in Catholic schools now are non-practising Catholics.

? By 2050 less than 35,000 Australians will attend Mass, around one in every 200 Australians and far less than attend in Parramatta Diocese alone today.
