Notre Dame Study Focuses on US Pastors & Catholic Education

Professors at the University of Notre Dame recently completed a national research report titled “Faith, Finances and the Future: The Notre Dame Study of U.S. Pastors.” The study is a “systematic analysis of pastors’ needs and perceptions regarding Catholic schools and Catholic education.” The study found that across the board Catholic identity and finances were the two most important issues US pastors are concerned with regarding Catholic education. The researchers suggested that there is a need for Catholic schools to be more fully integrated into the life of parishes in order to support their Catholic identity. Efforts to increase and strengthen the spiritual growth of faculty and staff are also needed, they said. Findings also showed that US pastors tended to value their parish schools more when Catholic colleges and universities also supported the mission of Catholic education on the parish level. Source: University of Notre Dame
