Change in Key Statistical Areas: 2002 – 2010
Broader Measures of Church Vitality

To get a broad-based sense of congregational vitality, we have
used a number of measurements — including church school
enrollment, marriages, funerals, child baptisms, adult baptisms,
and confirmations. These speak to a parish’s integration in the
community and the possibility for future growth
•
•

•
•


Change in church school enrollment: -33%
Change in number of marriages performed: -41%
Change in number of burials/funerals: -21%
Change in the number of child baptisms: -36%
Change in the number of adult baptisms: -40%
Change in the number of confirmations: -32%
While these numbers may not capture the totality of what is
happening in the Church, we do not have a measure that is
moving in a positive direction
