Survey: 60% of Catholics Call Themselves ‘Religious and Spiritual’

Many consider themselves pious but few attend Mass.

October 12, 2023  0

A recent study found 60% of Catholics call themselves "religious and spiritual." This may seem strange, considering other studies have found only about 1 in 5 Catholics bother to go to Mass on Sundays. Why would a large number of Catholics call themselves "religious and spiritual" when so few of them even come close to practicing the Faith? In this episode of The Download, hosts Bradley Eli, Christine Niles and Alex Karzon dive into data about the beliefs and practices of Catholics in the United States — as well as some data from other countries.
