( – Colleen Maney, of Ottawa, is atypical for her age.

She goes to church and she likes it.

“I attend church when I can, but work is currently my priority so I don’t go often,” Maney, 27, told The Times. “But I love my church. … The denomination is incredible, and the congregation is my family. I couldn’t be more proud of either one.”

A 2010 Pew Research Center poll indicates Maney is in the minority.

One-third of those under age 30 say they attend worship services every week, compared with 41 percent of adults 30 and older. Furthermore, 45 percent of adults under age 30 say that religion is very important in their lives, compared with 59 percent 30 and older.
