Henry VIII rolling in his grave

What’s the fastest growing religious group in Britain? If you guessed Muslim, you’d be ... wrong. St. Thomas More would be happy about the correct answer.

Roman Catholics will soon become the largest religious group in Great Britain, outnumbering Anglicans for the first time since the Reformation, the London Times reports.

Weekly Mass attendance at Catholic parishes now stands at about 1 million, roughly equal to the number attending Anglican services. But the Catholic population of Britain is steadily expanding, mostly because of immigration, while the Anglican community is in decline, the Times observes.

That immigration is coming from majority Catholic European countries like Poland.

  • “Faith of our fathers, Mary’s prayers
    Shall win our country back to Thee;
    And through the truth that comes from God,
    England shall then indeed be free.”
