Young Adult Survey Results

In 2013, the Department of Youth & Young Adult Ministry conducted an online survey of young adults throughout the Diocese. The link was primarily distributed through postcards in pews, bulletin announcements, emails to parish leaders to share, and word of mouth. There were a total of 547 respondents between the ages of 18 and 39.

Below are links to some of the survey results. We also have breakdowns by geographical region. If you are interested in those or further using the survey to help in creating a plan for young adult outreach, please contact Sarah Leahy.
