Turnout Still Falling At Masses

Turnout Still Falling At Masses: Catholic Church Struggles Against Attendance Trend, by Dan Horn (Cincinnati Enquirer, 19 September 2010)

Excerpt:
Almost two out of three Catholics in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky won't go to church this weekend to celebrate Mass, an event they have been told since childhood is the center of their spiritual lives. The church's most recent count of people in the pews found that about 290,000 Catholics in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati and 60,000 in the Diocese of Covington skip Mass in a typical week. The annual attendance count begins again next month, but church officials don't expect dramatic improvement.
