Dutch Catholics Leave Faith Rather Than Worship Elsewhere

According to the Dutch research institute KASKI, the number of people who call themselves Catholic has fallen by 20 percent in the last fifteen years alone, while the number of churchgoers at weekend services has dropped by 60 percent and the number of parishes by 55 percent. About one in five Dutch people (3.7 million) still see themselves as Catholic; however, less than 5 percent of them (153,800 people) regularly attend Mass.
