Sharing is Caring!

The latest data from Gallup paints a stark picture of the state of Christianity in the United States: church attendance has plummeted across all major Christian denominations. Over the past two decades, attendance has dwindled significantly, with Catholics experiencing the most pronounced decline.

In 2000-2003, 45 percent of U.S. adults identifying as Catholic reported attending religious services weekly or at least every week. Fast forward to 2021-2023, and that figure has plummeted to just 33 percent—a staggering 12-percentage-point drop. Meanwhile, Protestants have also seen a decline, albeit less steep, from 48 percent to 44 percent over the same period.

The data further reveals a broader trend of disaffiliation with organized religion, with 26 percent of Americans now considering themselves religiously “unaffiliated”—a 5-point increase from 2013.

The decline in religious affiliation is particularly pronounced among Catholics, who have witnessed the largest drop of any faith group in the United States. These findings underscore the shifting landscape of religious belief and practice in America, signaling significant challenges ahead for organized religion in the country.
