Interesting Surveys of Catholics, Thoughts and Practices

Hi All -

Click above to visit this week's National Catholic Reporter special insert on American Catholics - the results of several polls over several years. There are some interesting results between varying age groups and beliefs/practices, and may turn your thoughts about stereotyping "who is what sort of Catholic" on your head.

For instace, which age group had the highest percentage to self-state they "could not explain their faith to others"?

Those born before Vatican II, at 59%. The lowest percent is 44%, from Shannon and my age group, and the overall average is 49% (Table 13, toward the bottom of the page) - 49% is rather high, don't you think?

Make sure to read the whole of the findings, and please, don't take any items out of context, including the above statistic - everything is much more complicated than it seems...
