The general purpose of this study is, first, to determine how often and to what extent the students at Marquette University High School, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, are performing certain actions such as attending Mass and Holy Communion, saying the rosary, saying morning and evening prayers, making mental prayer, and other actions of this nature, and specifically to determine whether the Sodality of Our Lady, a Catholic association organized for religious purposes, is helping students at that high school to attend Mass and Holy Communion, to say morning and evening prayers, to make mental prayer, and to perform other similar actions . Second, the study will make a comparison of the sophomore, junior, and senior sodality groups to determine how often these groups perform these actions.
