SCOTLAND has become more Roman Catholic than Protestant

"Figures compiled by the independent group Christian Research reveal that in 2005 the number of Catholics who went to Mass surpassed those who attended Church of Scotland services.

... The change is due to the huge numbers of Catholic Polish immigrants who are boosting church attendance, raising numbers by some 50,000 people since the last time figures were published in 2002.

... He claimed that the Polish-inspired revival was now boosting the Church in other areas. "In terms of vocations to the priesthood, we hit rock bottom a few years ago when we had only about four or five men training to become priests. Now there are 15 or 16.

Meanwhile, without such outside support and with an increasingly ageing membership, attendance at the Church of Scotland is now declining rapidly, Christian Research suggests.
