Roman Catholic Church in Norway

Roman Catholic Church In Norway

Roman Catholicism in Norway is part of the worldwide Catholic Church, under the spiritual leadership of the Pope, the Curia in Rome and the Scandinavian Bishops Conference.

There were, as of May, 2012, over 110,000 registered Catholics in Norway. The Annuario Pontificio 2012, which gives the figures reported by the local church for 31 December 2010, indicates 84,499 Catholics in the Diocese of Oslo, 3,505 in the Territorial Prelature of Tromsø and 5,548 in that of Trondheim, a total of only 93,552. But there are also lots of Catholics who are not registered with their personal identification number and who are not reported even by the local church; the real number is probably about 230,000 Catholics, 70% of whom were born abroad. That constitutes about 5% of the population, making Norway the most Catholic country in Northern Europe.

Famous quotes containing the words norway, church, catholic and/or roman:

    A long time you have been making the trip
    From Havre to Hartford, Master Soleil,
    Bringing the lights of Norway and all that.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    “To me it seems a shocking idea. I despise and loathe myself, and yet you thrust self at me from every corner of the church as though I loved and admired it. All religion does nothing but pursue me with self even into the next world.”
    Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)

    One cannot really be a Catholic and grown up.
    George Orwell (1903–1950)

    Communism, my friend, is more than Marxism, just as Catholicism ... is more than the Roman Curia. There is a mystique as well as a politique.... Catholics and Communists have committed great crimes, but at least they have not stood aside, like an established society, and been indifferent. I would rather have blood on my hands than water like Pilate.
    Graham Greene (1904–1991)
