Episcopal Church Attendance Continues Steep Decline
10 December 2004

By David Virtue (Virtueonline.org)

Attendance statistics for the Episcopal Church USA in 2003 reveal a church in continued steep decline with nearly 36,000 active baptized members leaving for greener theological pastures, a significant drop from 8,000 in 2002. Another 24,000 Sunday worshippers left ECUSA last year, more than twice the previous year. In 2002 the church claimed a membership of 2,320,221. In 2003 it was down to 2,284,233, the church officially declared. Some 85 parishes closed their doors - 7,305 in 2002 to 7,220 in 2003.
