    Just how bad are the bad numbers in Europe?


    Catholic Poland has the highest figures with 56.7 percent of the population going to mass on any given Sunday.

    Runner up is Portugal – also predominantly Catholic – with 30 percent,
    followed by Greece (Orthodox) with 24.5 percent.

    Switzerland – mainly of the reformed Calvinist tradition – has the highest Protestant church attendance with 13 percent.

    In Germany, where Protestants and Catholics represent a third of the population each, the figure is 8.2 percent.

    Sweden and Estonia (3.9 percent each)
    and Denmark (3.2).

    This is the result of a study by the Research Group World Views in Mastershausen, Germany, based on statistics of the European Union.
