CENTER FOR APPLIED RESEARCH IN THE APOSTOLATE (CARA) STUDIES

CARA Study on PCMRT Communities Now Available!

We are excited to announce that the "PCMRT Worship Site Inventory and Demographics Study," conducted by the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate at Georgetown University (CARA) from 2017-2021, is now available!

Given the often-hidden reality of many immigrants, refugees, and people on the move populations in the United States, the PCMRT Subcommittee thought it critical to conduct a survey of diocesan and worship sites across the country to obtain information on the presence, outreach, and services offered to these populations in all territorial arch/dioceses in the United States. These profiles and the national report are available at: https://cara.georgetown.edu/  as well as https://cara.georgetown.edu/PCMRTReport.pdf

We are happy to offer each diocese a “Diocesan PCMRT Profile Report” as soon as it is available. An overview of the study was presented to the body of bishops on Friday, June 18th, 2021, at the Virtual June 2021 Plenary Assembly, and can be seen at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3AOgMTxoeV8

It is our hope and prayer that this report may be of help in identifying, strengthening, and expanding outreach efforts to the many immigrants, refugees, and mobile communities in the U.S. For additional information or to request your diocesan report, please contact PCMRT - Sr. Joanna Okereke at @email
