Title
Les Églises unie, anglicane et catholique et la communauté anglo-quebécoise : portrait et enjeux contemporains
Abstract
Using annual statistics from the United, Anglican and Catholic Churches as well as demographic data from Quebec and Canada, the author details the results of a series of quantitative analyses concerning the evolution of church indicators between the 1970s and the first decade of the twentieth-first century within the English-speaking community of Quebec. Data regarding religious affiliation, church attendance, membership and rites of passage(baptisms, professions of faith, confirmations, marriages and funerals) are also the object of his comparisons with similar statistics from the rest of Quebec and Canada in order to establish the particularities of Anglo-Quebecers in this matter. The author argues that the results show three main axes which distinguish tendencies of decline from those of relative stability: differences between denominations (Protestantism-Catholicism), between linguistic communities (Anglophone-Francophone) and between regions (East-West). The author found that Anglo-Quebecers resemble more often than not English Canada regarding religious indicator tendencies from the three Christian churches being studied. Declines, especially Protestant, in the English-speaking community are sometimes lesser than those in Ontario and in the West, but greater than those in the Atlantic region.
