At some point, I will actually graduate from graduate school. I'll need to find a Roman Catholic parish to join at some point. But what parish? Do I want to go traditional, modern, liberal, conservative, middle of the road or what? After some discussion with friends, I decided I should try out a few parishes and see which is a good fit for me. Then I had an idea. If I was going to visit different parishes, why don't I visit all of the Churches in the Archdiocese of St. Louis? I've gone hoppin around to different parish fish fries, why not parish liturgies?

The archdiocese lists 200 parishes or missions, surely I could visit all of them....

Why visit all of them? To get a sense of the richness of my Catholic heritage. To see what other Catholics are experiencing. To see how even though we are all different, we all fit under the tent. :P Besides, why not? As Fr. B says, "Because I can"

So this blog is a diary of my church-hopping through the Archdiocese of St. Louis. Come and join me!


  1. Thanks for the link to LOLSaints - I've added you to my feed reader, and look forward to reading your postings! I've parish-hopped quite a bit, but I have no plans on going to them *all* — that's a lot of parishes!!
