i went Friday night, have been going for years, and this year was pretty bad, ride company fell through with some of the rides only had nine and only two of them were for the bigger kids, and they didn't even start one of the rides up, they did lower the price because of it, and they didn't have as many games this time, i know it takes a lot of work putting on the picnic and i hope this didn't hurt them this year, and i don't understand having it the same weekend as the nelson co fair, seems like this would hurt the attendance to the picnic.

Crowds are smaller for several reasons. The Catholic Church is losing followers in record numbers. Too many double standards exist, money talks, people want more scripture and less same same Mass day after day. As an ex Catholic it got so boring I just couldn't stay awake or hold my attention. I'm trying not to be too critical but many of my friends felt the same way and left. Like any religion if you are happy with it don't change. Continue to worship where you are happy. Also, the economy has lots to do with people cutting back on their spending.

My wife and I went on Saturday night. We ate the chicken dinner, which was pretty good in my opinion. Maybe if they updated their games/prizes it might bring in more people. And some of the rides looked old. I'm sure they were perfectly safe to be riding but a new coat of paint every so often wouldn't hurt. I realize the picnic has nothing to do with that of course. We were told that there were going to be more rides for the older kids and adults but that the ride company fell through on their part. It could be time to look into finding a new company. You have to spend a little money to make money.

Pardon me! I suppose I should have asked the question in Baltimore or Miami's topix section. By the way, your nickname on here 'Lost' apparently is a good name for you. Bwahahahaha!

The picnic made $9000 more this year than last. It's simply not true that the Catholic church is losing members. Two examples are new churches built in Elizabethtown (St.James) and St. Andrew in Harrodsburg; both built to accommodate growing parishes. As a practicing Catholic I do appreciate your honesty and I am glad that you found a religion that suits you better but please keep an open heart and know you are welcome to come back to the faith any time.

Nice of you to offer the invitation but Louisville alone has lost several thousand Catholics to other religions. Approx half of Catholic h.s. have closed and several grade schools. Check with your arch bishops office just for KY alone. Overall the numbers aren't pretty.

Seriously, where are you getting your information from? I work in the system and Catholic elementary schools have been hit much harder than the high schools within the Louisville Archdiocese, and it's not due to lack of Catholics/Parishioners, it's due to the rising cost of Catholic Education period. Many just simply cannot afford it. Elementary schools' tuitions begin at $6k for one child. HS gets even more expensive, once tuition and special fees are paid it usually adds up to $11k-12k. I know multiple families that have children in elementary & HS that are paying out over $20k a year in tuition costs. Tuition assistance is out there, but may cut the bill in half at most. Our lackluster economy over the past decade has hit private schools hard (when the economy dropped many of the waiting lists disappeared), but schools like St. X, Trinity, Assumption, Sacred Heart, Presentation, Mercy, Holy Cross, and Desales are doing well, some of them exceptionally well. However, many Catholic parents are pushing to get their kids into the exceptional High schools, like Dupont Manual or Male Traditional, because they simply cannot afford a catholic education.

We agree Catholic schools are overpriced and Dupont M. and Male Traditional are in big demand. According to the National Catholic Education Association (NCEA), the number of Catholic schools fell from 8,146 to 6,980 between 2000 and 2010a loss of 117 schools every year. Combined primary and secondary school enrollment also declined 22 percent, from 2,647,301 to 2,065,872....You failed report all the Louisville Catholic Schools that have closed in the past 30 years. The largest Church in Louisville is Southeast C. which has over 25,000 members. Of that total over 50% are former Catholics. Other local Protestant Churches in Louiville have benefited from Catholic's leaving the church. Try Googling the FACTS.

Being Catholic takes discipline and faith. It isn't easy being Catholic, this faith asks a lot of you. Catholicism has been attacked for the past 2000 years. People leave and people join but the Catholic church has always persevered and will continue to do so. The problem is that the Catholics that leave can't leave it alone, they become "anti-Catholic" and want to persuade other Catholics to leave. I know Protestants, who would never attend a Catholic Mass, that have more respect for Catholicism than most former Catholics. If you leave the Church, so be it, stop attacking your former faith and "rooting" against it and put your energy into your new faith.

Catholics still outnumber protestants worldwide:

You are way overly sensitive and biased. Learn not to take what people write out of context. I reported the numbers for the reader to accept or not. If I were anti Catholic or "rooting" against it I would have said so. It is comments like yours that persuade people against it. There are just as many Protestants who won't attend Catholic churches as the opposite. Religious preference is a personal choice so, get over yourself while working on that attitude.
