Demographics of the South African Church
South Africa, has a 6% Catholic Population, in the Archdiocese of Johannessburg, where this raises to ten percent however, one in ten Catholics are the number to have been recorded attending mass over a few sundays in the diocese. The South African church has a need to ensure Catholics not only hold basic societal views, but also live their faith, are informed in it, and consider church and sacraments vital for salvation.
The previous Calvinistic in belief, Nationalist Party in South Africa saw the church as a threat. It was called the Roomse Gevaar. While the constitution forbids it, Catholics often face accusations, mockery, or misunderstanding from some groups themselves claiming to be Christian.
