100,000 baptized in LA in 2007 PDF Print E-mail

I'm having one of those high anxiety moments as I begin preparing for a major presentation in the Archdiocese of LA next week. Not enough time at home between gigs and so much to do! Your prayers would help immensely!

In the midst of my research, I came across this startling figure via the Tidings:

"The 2008 edition of The Official Catholic Directory notes the 100,604 people baptized in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles in 2007 included 95,408 infant Baptisms, 3,511 minor age Baptisms, and 1,685 adult Baptisms."

100,604 Baptisms exceed the total Catholic population of some 50 Arch/Dioceses across the country. This number also exceeds the total Catholic population of every one of the Eastern Rite Catholic Dioceses in our country. Put another way, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles in a sense baptized "a new Diocese of Catholics into the Church last year."

Snip.

--Very soon, Catholics will comprise 50 percent of the total population in our three Counties: Santa Barbara, Ventura and Los Angeles. And in a few years, Catholics will be a significant majority of the population.

"---Our great challenge is to not only baptize so many new members, but to make certain that they are properly evangelized and catechized so that their Catholic Faith underpins their daily lives."

Aye, there's the rub . . .

And I would note that 1,6oo adult baptisms is pretty small for a diocese of over 4 million.

But note: This is nearly 4 x the number baptized in the second largest archdiocese of the country:

---The Archdiocese of New York: a total Catholic population of 2,554,454, and 27,011 Baptisms.

and nearly 3X as many as were baptized in the third largest archdiocese:

---The Archdiocese of Chicago: a total Catholic population of 2,341,000, and 38,533 Baptisms.

Obviously, there are a lot more children being born to Catholic families in LA. Makes you wonder what percentage of those baptized are non-Anglo?

When the Canadian government established a series of entomological laboratories during the 1910s, crop protection was a domain where provincial governments were already busy providing technical support to local agricultural associations. The establishment of regional laboratories resulted from the adoption of the Destructive Insect and Pest Act in 1910, legislation that portrayed insect outbreaks as an interprovincial or an international problem under federal jurisdiction. The natural order conceptualized by federal scientists and legalized by the Canadian Parliament initiated a process of centralization. As the knowledge produced by the federal scientists reinforced representation of natural phenomena that legitimated their involvement across the national territory, the federal government concurrently achieved a political order by which it exerted its power over both nature and nation.
