New Report: The Singles Problem In The Catholic Church


Unmarried & Unrecognized Single Catholics

This must-read report illuminates the phenomenon remaking the national Catholic landscape — the record number of singles — with
interviews from a licensed Catholic counselor, an official from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ marriage office, a vicar
general and a host of single Catholics, backed by fascinating census data.

No other agency or organization has presented these findings, synthesizing important new data and interpreting it with Catholic
thought leaders. This is the report you didn’t know you needed: read it, retain it and pass it on.

  • Why are so many Catholics unmarried?
  • Who are single Catholics?
  • What do they want from the Church?
  • How do they relate to the national marriage crisis?

    yes if they make this site free by subsidizing it and pushed some pr/marketing effort into parish bulletins across the globe there would be no problem.

    I agree with Stephen – when a Catholic doesn’t find any support at their Catholic Church home, sadly, many go down the street to the non-denominational church where they are welcomed with open arms by enthusiastic benevolent Protestants that soon thereafter convince them to depart Catholicism as cold and uncaring. As a convert to Catholicism,
    I have been continuously swimming upstream against the tide in trying to get cradle Catholics to see how precious their faith is and why they should stay home and work in their Catholic Church to start programs that parallel their Protestant churches 🙂

    The problem is many churches don’t acknowledge people like me, never married, 41 and single. There are many more like me and even at much older ages.

    Yes, Stephen, it’s ABOUT time!

    And Ali, just to assure you, it’s not single Catholics that are the problem, it’s the lack of awareness of them. We sincerely hope this report helps change that.

      17 years ago when my brother got divorced, he left the Church because when he went looking for support etc as a single – the Church (this is in Colorado Springs, CO) didn’t have anything to offer. So he found it with the Presbyterians. So, how may people have suffered because of the inattention of the Church to the “one” lost sheep?
