Polish lead EU in Sunday church attendance

.-

A survey of 17 European Union countries has revealed that 56.7% of the people of Poland attend church regularly on Sundays.  The Kath.net news agency reported that pollsters at the Mastershausen/Hünsruck Agency in Germany carried out the survey on church attendance in the EU.

 

The results left Poland in first place, followed by Portugal with 30%, and the mostly orthodox Greece with 24.5%. 

 

In the traditionally Protestant countries, Sunday church attendance is much less, with Switzerland posting a mere 13%.  Of the 82 million Germans, 8.7% attend Catholic or Protestant churches.   Attendance in Sweden and Estonia is around 3.9%, while Denmark only reached 3.2%.
