Interest in the Catholic Church has virtually disappeared in the Dutch media. That’s strange what the Catholic Church is one of the biggest movements in the world. And the number of Catholics is rising, even in Europe.
Between 2013 and 2018, the number of Roman Catholics worldwide has increased by 6 percent to 1.329 billion. This is evident from the statistical yearbook that the Vatican published on Thursday, the ND writes.
This more or less parallels the increase in the world population
In Africa and Asia the number of Catholics grew faster than the population growth, in America, Europe and Oceania just less quickly. Yet the number of believers also increased by 94,000 in Europe.
