Results of study on Religious Orders is out.

The study by Brother Bednarczyk finds that religious orders have declined steeply in the past years since the Vatican Council. Yet there is success reported by a small but influential segment of those who have maintained a traditional response with respect to disciplines and teachings.

He noted that religious organisations with the most success in attracting new members have a more traditional style of religious life, in which members live in community, participate in daily Eucharist, pray the Divine Office and engage in devotional practices together. They also are more likely to wear a religious habit.
