"You have to realize that we Orthodox Christians are used to numbers far less that half that per priest. We have priests tending parishes of less that 100 people in some cases."
I'm referencing the overall baptized Catholics in a diocese. Even in a diocese that averages 500 families per priest, regrettably, we don't see 100% of Catholics involved actively in parish life. Unfortunately, it's probably closer to about a third, and in some dioceses, even less.
I used baptized Catholics only to illustrate the dramatic differences between dioceses.
And I was referencing the baptised Orthodox Christians in a parish. Regretably, we also do not see 100% participation of baptised in parish life.
The contrast in numbers remains valid.
