There are nearly 60 million people living in rural communities throughout the United States.

        Rural congregations do particularly well in such areas as helping worshippers grow spiritually, providing meaningful worship, involving people in the church, building a strong sense of belonging and empowering leaders, Woolever and Bruce reported in their book, “Places of Promise: Finding Strength in Your Congregation’s Location.”. by Amanda Fanger, Reporter and Farmer Shrinking population is just one of many factors that are coming into play for the struggles of rural area churches.

Many people told me to just love them, get to know them, and visit the shut ins. That was it. The National Catholic Rural Life Conference was founded on Novem , the third day of a gathering of bishops, priests, and laity in St. Louis, Missouri. They shared common concerns about Catholic rural life and determined it was time to form an active organization.
