In 2017 in Austria, hundreds of Muslims have converted to Christianity. About it reports Deutsche Welle.

75% of the 750-and receiving the rite of baptism of adults were immigrants from Muslim countries.

In the Archdiocese of Vienna believe that it is wrong to think that the desire of immigrants from Muslim countries because they’re more likely to obtain refugee status through the arrival of Christianity.

The Catholic Church of Austria stressed that it wants to “professed Christians” and baptismal candidates must pass a strict selection, and the preparation for it lasts for less than a year. Among the requirements is regular attendance at worship services, the Christian way of life and involvement in charitable activities.

Austria is considered one of the countries-members of EU, in which most of the migrants applied for asylum.
