+  Pew Study Suggests a Field Ripe for Catholic Reclamation

  • Description: Data from a recent Pew study reveals some discouraging facts about US Catholics. 77% of respondents who were raised Catholic and have left the Church say they cannot imagine returning. 69% of weekly Mass attendees say the use of artificial contraception is not a sin.
