VOLKSWAGEN PORSCHE AUDI 1403-3RD AVENUE MONTREAL (CP) There has been a dramatic decrease in attendance at churches and synagogues in this area in the last decade with few signs of a reversal in the trend. The Roman Catholic arch- diocese of Montreal, for ex- ample, is studying a report which found only 30 per cent of Catholics practise the faith, attend mass and receive the sacraments. The report was completed in October, 1972, and was based on samplings from 60 parishes. It was prepared by Rev. Jean-Pierre Duchesne, a sociologist employed by the archdiocese. The 30-per-cent figure shows a significant drop from a 1971 survey which indicated 38 per cent" of Catholics at- tended mass regularly. The figure in 1961 was 68 per cent. The 1971 federal census re- ported persons in the area who claim to be affil- iated with the Catholic Church. Father Duchesne also found only 12 per cent of Catholics between the ages of 25.and 35 attend church and receive the sacraments regularly. While church attendance has been dropping, there have been some early signs of a re- vival alongside the estab- lished structures of the par- ishes Such phenomena as the charismatic renewal and the community movement are beginning to attract younger Catholics who have been estranged from the established church. Rev Jacques Grandmaison, an advocate of changing church structures, said that 200 "Christian fraternities" have been formed in Montreal and have become involved in social issues by stressing' col- lective and secular in- volvement within a Christian framework. The United Church of Can- ada reports a general decline in church attendance. Dr. Ralph Watson, secre- tary of the Montreal presby- tery, said the number of per- sons who had contact with the church declined to in 1971 from in 1966. Decrease "People don't feel that it is necessary any more to attend church oh a regular he said. "They don't feel the need as we used to." Among Anglicans, the 1971 census listed persons affiliated with the church, but in 1972 only were on Montreal diocese parish lists. Mennonite pastor at seminar Pastor Henry Unrau of the Lakeview Menninite Brethren Church recently completed a week-long conference on church management in Dallas, Tex. Sponsored by Campus Crusade for Christ International, a world-wide evangelical orgamziation of students and laymen, the conference provided practical management training. "The objective was to provide practical management training in a context that is thoroughly Christian to help the participants learn to use their time, talents and resources to the greatest possible effectiveness in personal and public Mr. Unrau said. Campus Crusade started the conference on a test basis two years ago. Since that time, nearly church and lay leaders have received training New bishop consecrated Canon A.E. Halls said there is a "lack of identification" between nominal Anglicans and the parish church. He attributed part of the drop in attendance to transfer of Anglicans from Quebec, but mainly to the secular trends of the late 1960s. "We've come through a pe- riod of humanism. We've come through a God-is-dead period and the churches have been affected." More than adults re- ceived communion during Easter of 1962, while the num- ber fell to in 1969. But Canon Halls said the figures are beginning to rise and last year adults re- ceived Easter communion. He warned against any pre- occupation with statistics and said "we should not be look- ing for numbers of professing people but for ipeople living the Christian faith." "We must not be concerned with support ot church build- ings but with the impact on society of the basic principles of our taith Renewal The same is true for Mon- treal's Jewish community, al- though Rabbi Maurice Cohen of Shaare Zion Congregation said there may be signs of a renewal of interest in organ- ized Judaism. "Membership in all congre- gations is he said. "Attendance is down; mem- bership in youth groups is down, the number of children in afternoon Hebrew schools is down. "This has affected all people and not just the young." He said the trend began in the late 1960s, and attributed it to anti-establishment feel- ings and a demand for social change. "Jews were very much in- volved in the process of se- cularization and the syna- gogue was not a central part of this movement "We went so far left in kill- ing God that we may now be moving in the other direction. Fundamentalist and orthodox groups have become stronger in the religious scene than the liberal and progressive estab- lishment." To bring youth back, Rabbi Cohen said, more young per- sons are being encouraged to serve on 'governing boards. Some synagogues were chang- ing the format of sermons into dialogues with worshippers. "All religions need a moral ambience in which they can thrive. If it's not there, there's nothing much you can do. "Radicalism of the 1960s seems to be wearing off. There's a new feeling of toler- ance and the climate seems to be a little more favorable today CWL plans for 400 delegates An attendance of 400 delegates is anticipated here next week when members of the Catholic Women's League of Canada, Calgary Diocesan Council meet for its 52nd annual convention.
