Seven main trends for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee were presented at the Synod Implementation District Gatherings in February 2015.

The seven trends are:

  • Growing number of self-identifying Catholics
  • Declining memberships
  • Decreasing yet leveling off number of priests
  • Geographic shift in Catholic population
  • Projected population increase
  • Poverty throughout the diocese
  • Unclaimed population

These trends came from the CARA Report that was produced for the archdiocese. An informal stand-up survey was conducted regarding what people saw as the most concerning of these trends and what were the most hopeful trends. The result below are percentages based on approximately 1,100 people who attend the district gatherings.
