The Good We Rarely Tell Anyone

  • There are 1,321 parishes in Australia, including 29 belonging to Eastern Catholic Churches, serving 5.2 million Catholics of which 624,000 worship every Sunday (c. 12%), which means we could fill the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) seven times every Sunday with Mass going Catholics! Of this group, 94,150 of these Mass-goers are aged between 13 and 18.
  • Worldwide numbers are booming
