Segment 2 & 3 – New Study Examines Catholics’ Faith Life and Well-Being Post-Pandemic
“In late February, Vinea Research administered an online survey to a sample of more than 1,500 self-identified Catholics who went to Mass at least once per year. The survey analyzed effects of the pandemic on Catholic individuals, their faith lives, parishes, and future intentions. The results of the survey included both positive and negative outcomes on Catholics, with one of the significant negative outcomes being that in-person Mass attendance has decreased and is not expected to be back to pre-pandemic levels by summer of 2022.”

Hans Plate is the Founder and President of Vinea Research. With more than 25 years of experience providing professional market research to industry-leading companies such as Pfizer and Medtronic, Hans felt compelled to apply proven business-based research methods in service to the Church. Combining his market research expertise with his devout Catholic beliefs, Hans leads a team at Vinea Research to provide high-caliber, action-oriented market research to parishes, Church leadership, apostolates, and advocacy groups.
