First, You Have To Admit There's A Problem
Then you fix the problem itself

Here's most of the article from CatholicCulture.org; (Emphasis mine)
Leading African cardinal mourns loss of faith in Europe, North America

In an interview published in the February 24 edition of L’Osservatore Romano, the new president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace denounced “toxic elements of foreign cultures such as relativism and atheistic secularism” that are plaguing Africa.

Cardinal Peter Kodwo Appiah Turkson, who hails from Ghana, added that the Church in Africa laments the loss of faith in Europe and North America, from which missionaries had once left to preach the Gospel. Feeling “filial mercy” towards their “ancestors in the faith,” African bishops believe they “must support the Church in the lands of origin of the missionaries” and send priests to prevent parish closings in the West.

So when do we start cutting away the cancer that's destroying The Church from within?

We have an African priest in our parish. He recently immigrated in order to reinforce our own waning priestly ranks. He is solid articulate preacher of the gospel and the truths of the faith. Unapologetic defender of church teachings. I would be happy to have many more like him!
