The Vatican has reported a further dramatic fall in the number of Roman Catholic monks and nuns worldwide.Newly published statistics showed that the number of men and women belonging to religious orders fell by 10% to just under a million between 2005 and 2006.
Let the dawah continue!
Of the total, 753,400 members were women, while 191,810 were men, including 136,171 priests and 532 permanent deacons.
It’s really interesting to see how many nuns there are versus how many priests there are. I guess women are more into the religion than men.
