Mission 180 aims to offer free videos to “any school, parish … family, or individual looking for Catholic content they can use and share within their communities or their homes.”
Sometimes I fear that the New Evangelization is done. What began with great fervor reached its apex and is now subsiding. I worry that the internet has been run over with porn, secularist ideology and anti-Christianity.
I see the rising tide of nones and Wiccans, and young Catholics walking away from the Church in confusion about what the Church actually believes.
David Brooks of the New York Times pointed out that “according to a 2018 Pew poll, 29% of Americans say they believe in astrology. That’s more than are members of mainline Protestant churches. This surge in belief is primarily among the young. According to a National Science Foundation survey, 44% of 18- to 24-year-olds say that astrology is somewhat or very ‘scientific.’”
One piece in The American Interest declared that Wicca could be considered “the fastest growing religion in America.”
The Church is in desperate need of effectively reaching out to young people about the Church and what she teaches and why. Alex Trevino is looking to help.
