The main findings of a study of Mass goers, commissioned by Paix Liturgique, are:
- 32% of Britain's Catholics attend Mass at least once a month
- 43% of those Catholics who practise regularly would attend Mass in the Extraordinary Form once a week
- 50% of the Catholics questioned would find it normal if Mass were celebrated in the Extraordinary Form alongside the Ordinary Form in their parishes
- 60% of Catholics were unaware of Pope Benedict XVI's Moto Proprio Summorum Pontificum which lifted restrictions on the traditional Latin Mass in 2007
I wonder if that figure of 43% could be interpreted as a 'stable group'..... ?
( Some while ago, it was said that requests for Masses in the E.F. would need to be made by a stable groups of parishioners.)
