Spirituality has changed and got a new meaning recently. In every person's life a demand for spirituality and rituals appears. The question is how people treat this phenomenon in everyday life. Because of the effects of secularization the previous dominance of religion declined and new waves of religious movements were established. Our aim is to give an outline of what religion means for today's youth and what opportunities of religious behaviour they can choose. Furthermore, we would like to show how religiousness as a main field in the value system may provide security and guidelines in life; and the way how these may be connected to healthy adaptation in the family. The present study reports on secondary school students' religious denominations, their religiousness and religious attendance with attention put on socio-demographic and socioeconomic background. We attempt to reveal the connection between respect of parental values, parental control and social support regarding religiousness.
