  • 8 July 2008 : A new analysis of Catholic practice in Belgium

A study conducted by the Centre of Political Science at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (Leuven Catholic University) for the Belgian Catholic Bishops’ Conference has reported on the religious practice of Catholics in Belgium.
It estimates that around 7% are regular churchgoers (attending Sunday Mass), that approximately 28% of all civil marriages are Catholic and that the proportion of children baptised is between 57% and 60%. Furthermore, the researchers put at 208,000 the number of volunteers serving the Catholic Church in Belgium, equivalent to 2%-2.5% of the national population.

For further information, see the report by the Cathobel Agency.
