Segment 3 – Study about the factors that enable Catholic parents to raise faithful adult Catholics
“Sadly, only about 15% of kids raised in Catholic household grow up to be faithful Catholic adults. We identified families who bucked this trend successfully raised most—and in many cases all— of their children to a faithful adulthood.  We interviewed both the parents AND their faithful adult children to identify the  faith practices and  family dynamics that led to their success. The findings are practical, do-able, and  relevant to every family who wants to raise faithful children. They also point to a glaring (and frankly, catastrophic) omission in the Church’s current approach to evangelization and faith formation.” – Dr. Popcak joins us to dig into the study.  (Originally aired February 13, 2024)
