Impact of Catholic Media on Parish Life

Dear Area Coordinators,

I want to share with you some statistics to remind you of the importance of your work in spreading the word about EWTN.

The following is a recent survey on the significance of the Catholic media’s impact on parish life.

Your work as a Media Missionary is most important to the life of each and every parish.

Thank you for all that you do! I hope that you have a blessed Advent and a Merry Christmas!

Impact of Catholic Media on Parish Life:

* 94% are more spiritually engaged and inspired

* 69% are better able to teach their children the truths of our Faith

* 31% have come back to the Church because of Catholic programming

* 47% attend Mass more frequently

* 51% are more involved with, and more generous to, their local parish

* 12% had their marriages saved

* 83% state that they have learned a great deal about their Catholic faith

God Bless,
