Course Introduction

There is hope, and the Gospel is powerful. Our parishes must respond!

Where are the millennials and Gen Zs? Why aren’t they coming to Mass? What can we do to get them back? And, maybe most importantly, how can their gifts contribute to your parish? Many parish leaders find themselves asking these questions today as the retention rates of Catholics in these two generations plummet.

It is these exact questions that Katie Prejean McGrady seeks to answer. In this course, Katie provides a pathway to equip you to engage these generations, understand what makes them tick, and why they are disengaged, and then offer them the heart of what they are trying to find in the world.
