    Btw the middle age couple in front of me were doing literally non stop notes. They wrote down everything word for word. Only stopping when there was a video showing. Sheesh!

    Is that 50% growth? Of baptisms or attendance?

    Old people getting baptized, that's odd.

    Some confusion over percentages here.

    38 were baptized with a peak attendance of 7,100. Thus, for every 1,000 in attendance, 5 were baptized.

    We cannot talk of the percentage baptized in terms of growth or decline - because we'd have to compare it with previous baptismal numbers and peak attendances in that region.

    Maybe Cleveland Ohio is more blessed than anywhere else on earth ,werent they prophesised in the Bible according to the revelation Book ?

    Just saying.

    Thanks nowwhat.

    0.5% baptisms is a little higher than typical in recent times. Do you happen to know the attendance for last year? The reason I ask is that I have read a suggestion or two of lower attendances at some RC's in USA, this year.

    We have had the same venue for years. They used to squeeze in 10,000 or more .but to be fair they closed off the sections behind the stage this year
