Why are more people than ever before claiming no affiliation to organized religion?

What would draw young adults to churches more often?

These are some of the questions that likely will be raised at tonight's discussion of the recent Religious Landscape Study published by the Pew Research Center.

"Evening of Listening ... The Pew Report" is set for 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. tonight, Thursday, Sept. 17 at St. Paul's Cathedral, 127 NW 7.

The event is free and open to the public.
