Covington Diocese 1926

On the Kentucky Views site, on which I can get lost there is so much content, I found a denominational census from 1926.
1926 Covington Churches

Catholics came in first at 21,468 members attending 11 churches. Second was Southern Baptist at 3,777 attending 6 churches. This was once a very Catholic city and I would be interested to see where that falls in 2007. Our old churches here, prior to V2 were breathtaking! I'm finding some great photos of Mother of God and some others in Campbell County.

That's really interesting about how many Catholics there were there way back then.

*are* you thinking of moving then?

Yes, but only because the Catholics left here are liberal for the most part and embrace or encourage liturgical abuse. We have moving as an option.

Simon-Peter Vickers-Buckley said...

Ahhhhh. know a good place to move not too far from you...?

a thorn in the pew said...

Eh, it would have to be somewhere my husband could find work. But that's a sad state when a diocese is so bad it forces you to move. After yesterday seeing the Cincinnati children at our local Mass, I am glad not to be there at least. Moving south is appealing to me because I used to live in Winston-Salem and loved it. I don't do winter or guitars at Mass.

You should really look at Raleigh. I think you'd like the direction our diocese is already taking with our new Bishop...the game really is afoot, heads have rolled, names are being taken, asses ready to be kicked.

There are TONS of jobs around here you know.

If you want me to have a look for specific stuff for you email me (profile) and I'll see what pops up. On the other hand, looking for a job or someting similar is probably just as easy for you with the internet.
