October 31, 2022
CWN Editor's Note: More than 34,000 Catholics left the Church in Switzerland in 2020, according to a study by the Swiss Institute of Pastoral Sociology.
That loss—and increase of 2,500 from the previous year’s departures—represents about 1.5% of the country’s total Catholic population. Catholics are leaving the Church at a similar rate in Germany and Austria.
