Why is Catholic Church is selling vast tracts of land?
In Canada at least they are selling off huge tracts of land and closing schools, convents and hermitages. Rather odd.

it is called demographics , the changing population , large families which used to keep the population large are a rarity , the young people are moving out the areas where there parents who are now elderly are dying off, this is a world wide happening, new parishes are formed with small families . the priest numbers are down , the school enrolments are low , so it is up to the new immigrants to start the ball rolling again
