Check out these compelling research findings!
America magazine, the Catholic review of faith and culture published by the Jesuits of the United States, just released the most comprehensive survey of U.S. Catholic women ever conducted. Over 1,500 women participated in the survey, sharing their beliefs, practices, experiences and attitudes about being Catholic. Along with detailed data points comes a revealing, often surprising portrait of a powerful segment of our population.
“There are two major takeaways from this unprecedented survey,” Said Rev. Matt Malone, S.J., editor in chief of America magazine. “First, U.S. Catholic women are a political powerhouse. If they vote in the numbers they say they will, they may turn the tide in the mid-term elections.
Second, while they remain affiliated with the church, they are disengaged and disengaging. The survey is a wake-up call for politicians of both parties, as well as the U.S. Catholic leadership.”
Attached is the Press Release. Fr. Matt Malone and America magazine’s Executive Editor, Kerry Weber, are available to share their perspective along with more detailed findings and charts. To schedule a conversation, contact Linda Rigano at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 914-815-0396.
