Here are the 2010 Eastern Catholic Churches statistics as reported by Annuario Pontificio

http://www.cnewa.org/source-images/Roberson-eastcath-statistics/eastcatholic-stat10.pdf

How is the health of these Churches?  Are they increasing in membership or decreasing?

If my math is correct, the stats come out to...

Total number of people in 2000: 17,348,864
Total number of people in 2009: 17,664,646
Total number of people in 2010: 17,307,836

The data is incomplete, and there are unrealistic increases/decreases, so I don't know how accurate the numbers are. Still, if there is anything close to an accurate ballpark figure, the number of people seems to be staying the same...

A cursory reading says that the USA Eparchies have really suffered in the last 20 years.

We definitely need some reorganizatyion in order to help the EC Churches to grow and thrive. I think that implementing some of the suggestions from the Middle Eastern Synod a while back are a good idea.

Actually it is more honest/accurate reporting, though there have been losses.

His Grace Bishop John of the Melkites said that many Roman Catholics attend the Melkite Parishes or become Melkites only to convert to Orthodoxy in a few years. He also said that the Melkite Church appears to serve as a training ground for Orthodoxy and that the Eastern Catholic Bridge leads to Constantinople and not the other way around.

I've been told as much from former Eastern Catholics in our parish. One in particular had an Eastern Catholic priest recommend they become Orthodox because in his words the Eastern Catholic Churches were "dying."

My former EC priest (Maronite) always loathed the Latins and was equally upset with the neo-latinizations taking place in the Maronite church that he would often romanticize about Orthodoxy. At one time he said he wouldn't blame me for ever converting, but when I told him I was he accused me of being impulsive and to be more patient with the Maronites. Tongue I just can't win.  Cheesy

I was introduced to the Maronites by my aunt when we visited the Maronite parish in Atlanta.
The priest was married and his wife served up an impressive meal for all to enjoy.
The Divine Liturgy was in Aramaic and it was a special feast day held during the week.
This was quite a few years ago, but I was given a wonderful impression of their hospitality.
From there, I visited a Melkite Church and found myself led to Orthodoxy.

I don't see a problem with this.

I don't know if such a trend is viable but it does show that the arguments the Latins use to continually justify the U*** churches as a bridge to total communion are really weak.
