Picnic At St. Vincent’s Orphanage
The Jesuit sociologist, who
spent the past year as a distin
guished visiting professor at the
University of Notre Dame where
he conducted further parish re
search, also told the AVE MARIA
editors that "there is a lack of
understanding on the part of
priests about the status and role
of the Catholic American lay
man.”
He added, "I think the main
problem in this area is the fail
ure on the part of the clergy to
recognize the tremendous potent
ial of the laity for the good of
the Church.”
There is a "built-in difficulty”
which helps explain why laymen
are not exercising positions of
leadership within the Church. The
problem, Father Fichter says, is
that "One of the basic values in
our American culture is upward
mobility—the opportunity to rise
to a higher position, to improve
oneself—and one of the last
places where the lay Catholic can
find a channel of upward mobil
ity is in the Church.

Third Of All Baptized
Become Fallen-Aways
NOTRE DAME, IND. Father Joseph H. Fichter, S.J.,
who is generally regarded as the world’s foremost sociologi
cal authority on the Catholic parish, has revealed that his
studies indicate that “approximately one-third of all bap
tized Catholics” become fallen-aways.
In an interview with the editors of THE AVE MARIA,
national Catholic weekly maga
zine published here, Father Fich
ter said that although much more
research is needed before his par
ish studies could be projected
across the United States, he has
also discovered other important
factors in his parish research.
"Roughly," he said, "we learn
ed that about 10 per cent of
the parishioners are nuclear,
70 per cent are modal, and 20
per cent are marginal." A nuc
lear parishioner "is one who is
at the core of the parish by
reason of his regularity at re
ligious practices, and by reason
of his activity as a mem
ber of a social unit." Modal
parishioners are "average" and
marginal Catholics are those
between the average and the
fallen-away in religious prac
tices.

in practically every other institu
tion and group. But in the Church
there is a ceiling. The layman
can go only so far then he runs
into the barrier which dictates
that practically all of the more
important functions be perform
ed by priests.”
The priest-sociologist explained
further that "I’m not suggesting
a revolution of democratization
of the Church. I don’t know
whether this prooblem can ever
be solved. But as a sociologist, I
must recognize the problem.
"I think there should be much
greater recognition of the laity.
It seems to me that the most
successful pastors are the ones
who know how to do this. They
look for ways to promote initiat
ive, to give recognition, to en
courage the laity to share in de-
cision-making.”
Specifically, he said, "I think
that laymen can run many of the
parish organizations better than
priests and that they should be
encouraged to run them, whether
it is a group trying to help youth
through an athletic program or
through a scout program. This is
their job, this is what they know
how to do best. The more you give
them the right to do this, the bet
ter they will do it.”
