Map of priest/parish decline in U.S. since 1990

The number of priests in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles has decreased by 20 per cent since 1990. In California, only San Francisco and Stockton suffered greater losses, but keep in mind that they are small dioceses. Los Angeles, in contrast, is the MOST POPULOUS ECCLESIASTICAL JURISDICTION in the nation.

Way to go, Roger! Another stunning statistic for your memoirs. Better start writing. 2011 is just around the corner. If you need a pen that will write and not get weary, I heartily recommend THIS ONE.

Cardinal Mahony became archbishop of L.A. in 1985.
