EPISODE SUMMARY

One of the fastest-growing religious affiliations, or more accurately, disaffiliations is the large number of people who declare themselves to be former Catholics.  Departures from the Church are especially pronounced among the young, but are not limited to them. In places like Australia, France, Germany and increasingly in the United States which for many years differed from other places, the Catholic Church is haemorrhaging members. Father William Grimm, who lives in Japan,  shares some thoughts on this.
