U.S. Catholic Population: Highlighting Counties With Low Percentages of Catholics, 2013 24-by-36-inch U.S. Catholic Population Map

The Glenmary Research Center (GRC) has collected data pertaining to the number of Catholic (Latin and Eastern rite) adherents in the United States. This data was published in the 2010 U.S. Religion Census: Religious Congregations & Membership Study.

The Catholic data has also been used to create this U.S. Catholic Population map, which highlights home mission counties with less than 3 percent Catholic population.

The home mission counties outlined in red on the map indicate areas where the priests, brothers and lay coworkers of Glenmary Home Missioners have—over the past 75 years—established Catholic faith communities. Prior to Glenmary's arrival in these areas, the Catholic Church was not effectively present.

The map is being offered for free.

BLACK RELIGION IN THE EVANGELICAL SOUTH
By Richard Tristano
64 pp (paperback)

Examines the development of black religion in the southern United States, noting major themes as well as differences between white and black religion. An attempt is made to integrate developments in black society such as the civil rights, black power and black theology movements. The assumption is made that black religion in the United States has been and continues to be overwhelmingly Christian. Because the book is intended as an introduction to southern religion, it concentrates on Baptists and Methodists who make up the majority of Southern Christians. The study does not deal with black Catholicism, Pentecostalism, Holiness or other traditions.
