WHY RADIO WITH CATHOLIC CONTENT IS IMPORTANT FOR BUILDING FAITH

 

THE PROBLEM

Americans are losing their faith. 

·     8% drop in the number of Catholics

·     Fewer than 1 in 5 are Catholic

·     44% rise in the number of “None” (no affiliation)

·     47% claiming No Affiliation

·     Many Catholics hunger for more educational content

OUR SOLUTION

We need to reach the people!  Unlike other ways of reaching people, radio reaches people at home, while driving and even in workplaces.

When existing radio stations broadcast Catholic material:

·        95% more spiritually engaged

·        94% increased time in prayer

·        83% more educated in the Catholic faith

·        64% increased Eucharistic Adoration

·        62% increased confession attendance

·        60% increased Mass attendance

·        51% increased involvement in parish life

·        12% considered vocation to priesthood and religious life

·        7% converted to Catholicism

(ora et labora)
