Date and Time: Thursday, September 14, 2017, 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time

Co-Sponsors: NCCL Evangelization Committee and Catholic Apostolate Center

In Winter 2017, the Evangelization Committee of the National Conference for Catechetical Leadership (NCCL) conducted a survey to understand how parishes and schools are involved in the evangelization and faith formation of families and parents/grandparents. They survey asked leaders to identify their approach to families, the ways they evangelize families and engage them in faith formation, the ways they reach families at home. The survey concluded by inviting leaders to describe the challenges they face in the evangelization and faith formation of families. The Family Survey Report presents the research findings from the 468 parishes and schools that responded. The respondents came from across the United States, representing over 400 zip codes.
