And that we have a lot more priests in comparison and no laity serving the Eucharist.
"And that we have a lot more priests in comparison and no laity serving the Eucharist."
It would be interesting to know, in the United States, how many folks are counted as Orthodox, how many are active, and how many priests there are.
Also, it would be interesting to know these statistics in the rest of the world at large. I remember looking a couple of years ago about Orthodoxy in the Republic of Georgia. There were around 600 priests, if I recall correctly, for several million nominally-Orthodox persons. But it seems that at least in that country, the ratio of active believers to the entire number of nominal believers is quite low.
