+  Church Growth and Church Decline: Observations from Canada

  • Description: Catholics frequently point to the 1960s as a turning point for the faith, due to the impact of Vatican II and the so-called "cultural revolution." In the decades since then, the Catholic Church has had a harder time attracting people to worship and the priesthood and indifference to Church teaching is now widespread. Canada has often led the US in major social trends, and the decline of Christianity is no exception. What lessons can American Catholics learn from the decline of Mainline Protestantism in Canada? We'll take a look with Dr. Kevin Flatt.
