One of the many factors we are considering is Catholic Churches. My wife attends daily where we lived in Michigan.

Catholics are a growing minority here in NC In Charlotte there are only about 9 churches scattered around. What part of Charlotte are you thinking of living in?

Thanks for the info. We will be moving right before our youngest receives his First Holy Communion. It breaks my heart that he has to "start all over again" at a new parish. I was dissappointed to read that there aren't any more Catholic churches around.

We honestly don't know yet. We have a goal of leaving NJ before April (who know if that's realistic, but at least we have a goal.) We've concentrated at lot of research into the Raleigh area, but soon realized that Charlotte has more to offer as far as jobs in finance, bigger "city" feel, etc. It is VERY important to us to find a good Catholic parish.

Well actually, I don't think there is a bad one in this area

Sorry, I wasn't implying that ANY RC parishes in the Charlotte area would be "bad". I was just surprised that there aren't more of them.

If you end up in the southern end of Mecklenburg your closest church would be St. Mattew's, which also has the newest Catholic school next door. It is a huge parish (largest in the state last time I checked), but very active and involved in the community. This is also a young parish; many, many young families. Closer into Charlotte's inner core there are four other parishes and St. Peter's is right downtown on S. Tryon. It is the oldest Catholic Church in the city and worth seeing anytime you are downtown and want to stop in, they are always open with noon mass every day (unless they have changed their schedule). St. Gabriel's is my parish on Providence Road. We are the only church in the city/county to have 24 hour Eucharistic Adoration 365 days a year. We are the second largest parish and have a mix of people, including more of a senior citizen population. There is a mass in Spanish every Sunday afternoon. Our priest is one of the most humble, wonderful, down to earth priests I have ever met. Too bad for us he is retiring next summer Let me know if you want any other specifics. Interestingly, we also have a Vietnamese Catholic Church in southwest Charlotte, St. Joseph.
