Fellow CNS reporter Dennis Sadowski has been hard at work on a piece focusing on the diversity of the Catholic Church. His story will be reminiscent of another story that appeared in the National Catholic Reporter a little while back.
In addition to regions that may be predominately one particular race or ethnicity, the National Catholic Reporter article highlighted areas where an individual parish provides a microcosm of the entire state and perhaps country. It also touched on the relationship between the Catholic and evangelical communities in the region.
UPDATE: Here’s the story by Dennis Sadowski referred to above.
