A program presented in partnership with the Franciscan School of Theology
A growing number of studies are examining Catholic young adults, and they all report the same results: young adults are leaving in droves. However, when these studies are examined more closely, they offer a more interesting story than the “leaving in droves” narrative provides. This talk will lift up important takeaways from what we have learned and distill a set of questions to craft a ministry for Catholic millennials and iGens. Participants will walk away with a better understanding of today’s young adults.
No fee and no registration required. Program will be in the Auditorium.
