What Are Churches Doing Right?

I just listened to an interesting discussion between Fr. Mitch Pacwa, S.J. and Dan Cellucci, the CEO of the Catholic Leadership Institute on EWTN Live.  I highly recommend you listen to it.  You can find it here.

The Institute visits a lot of churches and has insight into what is working and what is not.  Why do some churches bring 30 people into the church at the Easter Vigil, while some seem to be dying?

The problems facing our churches today cross all barriers.  Protestant, Catholic, whoever.  Dan gives some shocking statistics about the retention rate of people who enter the church and seek the sacraments.

What is working in Religious Education?

What can we do about poor homilies or poor leadership?

What should the people in the pews be doing?

Be sure to check this out and then consider what you might be able to do for your own church!

You can learn more about the institute at CatholicLeaders.org.

And don't forget to check out my latest podcast,  Opening God's Word about being prepared for the arrival of Jesus!
