The Beauty and Challenge of Being Catholic: Hearing the Faithful

Mapping the Landscape of Catholic Voices

Your Stories, Your Voices

Particular themes started to develop as we read each person's response: stories of the Eucharist, conversion, hierarchichal struggles, and so on. Sort through the five broad topic areas as you read these reflections.

  • The Changing Face of Catholicism
  • Community in the Sacraments
  • Finding Stability in a Moored Tradition
  • Seeing the Church Anew
  • Wrestling with the Church

About the Project

What started out as a simple query for a few voices prompted us to tell our stories differently — on air and online. With the hundreds of responses we've received, we wanted to share all the stories of people talking about their Catholic faith. And why not give you greater context: geographically, demographically, visually, and aurally?

Our dynamic map allows you to read and listen to people's stories, and see the developing make-up of the Catholic Church — from the U.S. to Chile to Northern Ireland — all from a first-person perspective.
