(Worthy News) – A higher percentage of members of the 118th Congress, 88%, identify as Christian than the share of Christians in the U.S. population, which stands at 63%, a Pew Research Center analysis revealed Tuesday.

At the same time, Pew said the 469 Christians listed at the start of the new Congress is the lowest number since the nonpartisan group began analyzing the religious composition of Congress in 2009.

There are 303 Protestants in the new Congress, up six from the 117th session and the first time since 2015 that the number has topped 300. Catholics hold 148 seats, down 10 from the previous Congress. Their percentage of the session’s makeup, 28%, is higher than the number of Catholics in the U.S. overall.
