Part II: Faith & Parish Life

Mass Attendance and Registration

  • Most respondents attend Mass at least once a week and are registered parishioners.
  • Most respondents have attended their current parish for 11 or more years.
  • Mass attendance and registration is lower among younger parishioners.
  • Those with children are less likely to attend Mass every week.
  • Parishioners who attend Mass more regularly said they sometimes miss Mass because of personal conflicts, while those that do not attend at all simply do not relate to Mass.
