A whopping 90% of practicing Catholics say they will
A new survey finds most Americans plan to attend church Easter Sunday. Andrew Walther of the Knights of Columbus says 90% of practicing Catholics say they'll be in church.
"If there was one thing that surprised me a little bit I would say it's the number of non-practicing Catholics that plan to go to church."
Walther says 70% of non-practicing Catholics will be seated in a pew. He says Catholics understand Easter is at the core of the Christian faith.
"As Christians, Catholics understand that Easter is the core piece of the faith. This is really at the center; Christ rising from the dead is something that Catholics see as absolutely crucial."
The Knights of Columbus-Marist poll found 58% of Americans say they'll be in church Sunday.
