Father John Belmonte noticed two things about the millennial generation – they were scarce in the pews, and they were always on their smartphones.
Since many millennials – people ages 18-34 – are now young parents, Father had an idea to bridge the gap by "evangelizing, education, and re-engaging" this demographic through the "We Parent More" app.
"We wanted to make it a technological piece in the new evangelization," Father Belmonte said.
The app has six different buttons which include information on the Catholic faith, blogs from young Catholic parents, Mass and confession times for parishes across the United States, and games for kids.
