I think in the past they did have larger families. It could also be related to the notable distinction that the Catholic Church is one of the only remaining Christian churches that prohibits artificial contraceptives. The Episcopal Church in 1930 was the first to permit and others followed suit, but the Catholic Church has remained steadfast.
