Hi All,

I'm looking for a Catholic Church in Charlotte that has some diversity. I have been attending Sr Mark in Huntersville on Saturdays but there is a real lack of diversity. I can deal with that but I'm used to parishes that have some level of diversity. Any suggestions? I would prefer a parish that has a school.

Also, why are there so few parish schools? Again, I'm used to a school at almost every parish. Or are there schools on the north side of Charlotte?

Our lady of the Assumption on Shamrock Dr. Very diverse and has school attached. Used to be where everyone in Huntersville went before St Mark's opened up.

What exactly do you mean by "diverse Catholic Church"?
Where do you live?
Give us some more details so that we can help you.

I'm in the North Area. WT Harris/Mallard Creek Church

By diverse, I mean people of various backgrounds/ethnicities. For example: I don't know that I've seen more than 4-5 people of color when I've attended mass at St Mark. I noticed recently and thought that the parish may not be very diverse. Maybe Saturday afternoon is a bad time. ;-) I'd like a parish that looked like there were people of many ethnicities.

There aren't many Catholic schools especially on north side of town. As I said in previous post Our Lady of Assumption has a school and when I was a member of that parish it was a very mixed group. My son went to school there for a while also. I really liked it but got fed up driving from the south side of town! There is only one Catholic High School and only one middle school on the south. I am not sure if St Marks has a middle school.

I was going to suggest St. Matthews in Ballantyne, but that would be too far for you.

And truly, Our Lady of the Assumption is THE most diverse

Anyone wanting to enjoy a predominantly African American mass with a FANTASTIC gospel choir should also consider visiting Our Lady of Consolation on Statesville Ave.

I've been to OLOC, but I didn't care so much for their priest. Plus, I'm looking for diversity on both ends of the spectrum. ;-)

Oh, I've visited St Thomas Aquinas a few times and enjoyed their priest's homilies. But they don't have a school. ;-) I'll try Assumption. I think I will go to St Matthew one day just to check it out.

Sounds like folks in the North need to push for another middle and then high school.

St. Marks in Huntersville is K-8. I don't believe there are any plans for another middle or high school anywhere else.

Do you know why??

I would think there would be more. There were about 8 high schools in the general area where I am from.
