CWN Editor's Note: As Pope Francis arrives in Quebec, an AP report shows the Catholic Church in severe decline there.

Although on paper the province is overwhelmingly Catholic, less than 10% of the people attend Mass regularly. More than 700 Catholic churches have been closed in the past twenty years—a loss of about one-fourth—and infant baptisms have dropped by 30%.
