The national agency that conducts surveys and research about the Catholic Church, its members and its ministries has just marked 25 years crunching the data.
Established in 1996 as the Pastoral Projects Office and later named the Pastoral Research Office, the National Centre for Pastoral Research – as it has been known since 2018 – recently celebrated the significant milestone and its history.
