  • Description: "In just 13 years, there has been a 50% drop in the number of Catholic baptisms and marriages performed in the Archdiocese of Detroit, Archbishop Allen Vigneron revealed Wednesday. That figure stood out for Vigneron as the Detroit archdiocese released findings from a November survey of 41,000 Detroit-area Catholics. While the survey showed that nearly two-thirds of surveyed Catholics rated their parishes as “good” or “excellent” in promoting Catholic goals, it underscored why Catholics gave lower marks for outreach to youths, young adults and lapsed Catholics."
