Cuba's Catholic population 'halved'

The Catholic population of Cuba has nearly halved since 1961, according to the Italian missionary magazine, Mondo e Missione (World and Mission).

It said that in 1961 more than 90 per cent of Cubans were Catholics. But current Church statistics revealed that only about 50 per cent of the present population was considered Catholic. Scarcity of priests seemed to be a major reason for the drop.
