The CARA Report


Since 1995, the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate (CARA), at Georgetown University has been publishing The CARA Report, providing our readers with the most important and up-to-date research on American Catholics and the Catholic Church in the United States. The CARA Report was awarded first place for "general excellence" by the Catholic Press Association in 2003, 2005, 2007, and in 2008. Judges for the 2007 awards noted, "It is hard to imagine a Catholic who wouldn't find something of interest in this newsletter. The variety of topics addressed in informative articles and graphics stands out from the field of newsletters in this category... Though reporting on academic research, the stories are clearly written and understandable. Graphics are not fancy, but are used extensively and always add clarity." In 2008, judges commented that the publication has "lots of graphics [to] help explain a variety of research findings on many topics, and overall, it presents itself as a one-stop shop for information on trends in both the church and in larger society."
