A record number of people left the Church in the German Archdiocese of Munich and Freising last year, a local statistical office said Tuesday (May 25, 2020).

The Munich statistical office told CNA Deutsch, CNA’s German-language news partner, May 26 that 10,744 Catholics formally withdrew from the Church in 2019. It noted that this was a fifth higher than in 2018, when 8,995 people left.
