    I was too when we first started having those numbers about 5 years ago, but it's kept up ever since. I don't know why it happens but it does.

    To me it seems that Catholicism with it's strict pro-life, pro-traditional marriage and pro-family teachings has attracted Evangelicals. Most of them that I met were happy to be part of a faith that didn't change on a whim with the latest fad.

    It's just weird to think that in a city of 100,000 people with only about 2500 Catholics that across three parishes we manage almost or over 180 converts a year. Over the course of 10 years thats almost doubling the Catholic population here with converts alone.

    Lord knows why it happens but I just pray it continues.
