Editorial Reviews


"Parish matters, but so too does diocese. This book brilliantly shows us how the Catholic Church as an institution has made decisions about how to respond to the diversity and voluntarism of American religion. Combining vivid ethnographic detail with astute organizational analysis, Parish and Place adds a critical piece to the puzzle that is contemporary religious practice."--Nancy T. Ammerman, author of Pillars of Faith: American Congregations and their Partners

"Bruce's innovative investigation of personal parishes-an important but under-studied dimension of Catholic life-draws on a rich mix of primary data to insightfully illuminate the negotiation of purpose and place, community and diversity, and hierarchical control and lay determination in contemporary American Catholicism." --Michele Dillon, author of Catholic Identity: Balancing, Reason, Faith, and Power

"Tricia Bruce's groundbreaking work is destined to shape important conversations about U.S. Catholic parish life. Personal parishes, defined not by territory but by purpose, remain an interesting alternative to serve the spiritual and pastoral needs of an increasingly diverse Catholic population nationwide. Parish and Place demonstrates that personal parishes are spaces of hope, pastoral creativity, and identity negotiation from which the rest of Catholic faith communities can learn much."--Hosffman Ospino, Associate Professor of Hispanic Ministry and Religious Education at Boston College
