The article focuses on the generation and gender gap among Catholics in the U.S. based a the study by sociologists William D'Antonio, Dean Hoge and Mary Gautier. Younger Catholics go to mass and receive sacraments less frequently. Older Catholics believe in going to mass weekly and agree with the church's teachings, while younger Catholics believe in the basic teachings such as the Eucharist and the Resurrection. Catholic women are less supportive of the church's teachings on divorce, abortion and homosexuality.
