The number of Catholic people in Scotland has risen since 2001 according to the Scottish Catholic Observer newspaper.
The 2011 census showed an increase in Scottish adherents to the Catholic faith of some 37,000; taking the total number of Catholic people in Scotland to 841,000.
The census also revealed that 54% of the country identify themselves as Christian.
It would appear that talk of Christianity 'dying' is, as we suspected, premature and lacking in any foundation. The Faith is very much alive!
