I think you have it exactly backwards. The Church - particularly the Catholic Church - is not relevant today because it has almost completely conformed to the world. Yeah, sure, sexual sin (and to a lesser degree, abortion) might run contrary to popular sentiment, but even on these things they are complete hypocrites.

Church has become about a pep talk, looking pretty, putting in some money to keep the lights on, and living your life just as everyone else. Why on Earth would people get up on Sunday morning for that?

Until the Church actually lives out the gospel of Christ it will continue a slow death. The great thing? People coming from dead churches/catholics are still seeking Truth. When they (finally) find a church that lives out their faith, lives are being radically transformed - I see it everyday.
