Pre-Evangelization and Young Adult “Native Nones”: A New Paradigm for Reaching the Unchurched
What motivates American young adult “native nones,” or those who have grown up without a religious background, to investigate the Catholic faith? What turns them off? How do we reach them? Tamra Hull Fromm re-examines the role of pre-evangelization in the contemporary context and presents a micro-study of twenty-four “native nones” who chose to investigate the Catholic Church through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) in the Archdiocese of Detroit, USA.
