Diversity in Catholic Parishes

My recent book Parish and Place fosters a conversation about diversity (and its limits) in expressions of local Catholicism. I was interviewed and quoted in a Philadelphia Inquirer story by reporter Kristin E. Holmes that engages such themes. From the article:

“Indeed, parishioners who are part of an increasingly diverse Catholic church often seek ‘ways to feel at home’ in the congregations, said Tricia Bruce, an associate professor of sociology at Maryville College in Tennessee and author of  Parish and Place: Making Room for Diversity in the American Catholic Church. Also, new movements can create parish spaces where members can try something new that will make them excited to go to Mass, she said.”
