As abuse scandals continue to roil the Roman Catholic Church, Gallup finds that more than one in three American Catholics say they have considered leaving the church. Simone Campbell, a Roman Catholic sister and executive director of NETWORK, joins the podcast to give context to Gallup’s findings on confidence in church leadership and how Catholics are responding to the ongoing scandals. What does Sister Simone see as promising signs on the horizon for the church? Later, we hear from Catholics themselves on their trust in the church and whether they’ve considered leaving.
