Membership in Catholic, Muslim communities surges in Norway
Norway's official statistics agency says the country's Roman Catholic and Muslim communities have added tens of thousands of members in recent years while the state Lutheran Church is declining.
Statistics Norway said Friday the number of Catholics has jumped 42 percent since 2012, to 145,000 this year.
Membership in Islamic groups rose by 32 percent to 148,000 in the same period. Those figures were not broken down by denomination.
