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.
Then it seems that Orthodox parishes can be very, very small.
If there are 100 MEMBERS (not families) in a parish, and two-thirds of those aren't active (often the regrettable situation in Catholic parishes), that means that there are priests who have a single parish for which to care comprising perhaps 35 active members?
That wouldn't be typical at all in the Catholic Church.
My own parish is far more typical, where there are perhaps 650 or 700 registered families, but where perhaps 200 families are active, with a single, full-time priest dedicated to our parish, assisted by one deacon. Our parish used to be larger, with over 1,000 families, and perhaps 300 or more active families, but then, we had two priests and two full-time deacons.
