Young people are hurting and broken and they don't know why.
Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) November 04, 2015
The CatholicMatch Institute released the booklet Purposeful Dating in Philadelphia, PA during the World Meeting of Families 2015. Purposeful dating means to date with the vocation of marriage in mind. The intention of the Institute is to create more Catholic marriages by helping single Catholics date better.

In the face of a drastically declining rate of sacramental marriages, The World Meeting of Families has created a larger dialogue about the condition and purpose of today's single Catholics. This conversation is long overdue, and now is the time to recognize and support the single Catholic community. This is why CatholicMatch felt blessed to be asked to present at the World Meeting of Families on behalf of the only people who can improve this dire situation, single Catholics.
Presenting at the World Meeting of Families on 'Where is this Relationship Going? Dating as Discernment' was the co-founder of CatholicMatch, Brian Barcaro, along with managing editor Robyn Lee, and contributing author and the editor of Catholic Digest, Danielle Bean. The 'Purposeful Dating' booklet looks to continue the message of that presentation by addressing some of single Catholics most troubling concerns when it comes to dating.
Should every date be focused on marriage?
How do I know if I am settling?
Is there a wrong way to date?
These questions and more are answered in the 'Purposeful Dating' booklet, and is just a small part of the CatholicMatch Institute's mission of creating more Catholic marriages, beginning with serving the single Catholic community.
