New churches compete for Brazilian souls

As Catholic Church loses followers, Evangelical churches offer modern alternatives.

    Brazil has the highest number of Catholics in the world but more and more people are abandoning the faith.

    Meanwhile, the popularity of Evangelical churches is soaring.

    They offer modern alternatives to the traditional Catholic Church - some with priests wearing T-shirts and credit cards machines used to charge donations.
