We Need Evangelization
There are 68,115,001 Catholics in the United States, making up 22 percent of the U.S. population, according to the Kenedy Directory the overall number of Catholics has gone up by one million from 2007 to 2008. The number of Catholics increased, but the number of people recieving sacraments particularly baptism and matrimony declined. Also the number of conversions declined by 9%. This is a clear message that we Catholics need to get out and evangelize. We need to help show our fellow Catholics the importance of the faith.
