Catholics in Crisis

More on this article Mike mentioned, from a statement by Peter Isely, SNAP [Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests] National Board and Midwest Director, Milwaukee.
In 2005, according to this month's [November's] Milwaukee Magazine cover story [print only] on the crisis in the Catholic Church in Milwaukee, 20,000 registered Catholics in the archdiocese left the church.

... In addition, financial contributions under Dolan, unlike other dioceses that have turned the corner on the abuse crisis, are in alarming decline.

Update: The article blurb says
One of the nation's most Catholic archdioceses is hurting bad. Can new outreach programs and a super-salesman archbishop win back people's trust?
