WUOT / NPR Interview about Parish & Place

I sat down recently with Brandon Hollingsworth of WUOT (Knoxville’s NPR-Affiliate) to discuss my most recent book, Parish and Place: Making Room for Diversity in the American Catholic Church. The description from WUOT’s website reads:

For decades, where Catholics went to mass was a matter of geography. But increasingly, the Church is making room for personal preferences, including ethnicity, social values or even the style of service. It’s called the “personal parish,” and it’s the subject of Maryville College sociologist Tricia Bruce’s new book, Parish and Place: Making Room for Diversity in the American Catholic Church.

In this conversation with WUOT All Things Considered host Brandon Hollingsworth, Dr. Bruce talks about the creation and evolution of personal parishes, and how they interact with Catholic tradition and custom.
