We are aware that Catholic is not the predominant religion in the South yet we are hoping to find a strong Catholic Community to be a part of in the WS area. Can anyone provide insight into this?

There are several good sized Catholic churches here in Winston. The largest is probably St Leo's, which also has a school. The other one I can think of is Our Lady of Mercy. There are several other parishes around, just google catholic churches winston salem. While not the predominant religion, it was larger than I had anticipated.

Bishop McGinnis High School in Kernersville is an excellent school and serves the entire Triad are including Winston-Salem, Greensboro and even as far as N. Wilkesboro. I'm not Catholic, but had several friends who were members at St. Leo's. I always heard good things about it.

Holy Family in Clemmons is huge...they just built a new auditorium in 2005 that seats 1,200 - and the parish has over 1,500 member families. It's a welcoming, friendly community...I highly recommend it.

Don't be fooled by the statistics listing "Southern Baptist" or "Evangelical" as the dominant denominations. Those may be the denominations with the highest membership or with the most churches, but remember that number may be something around 25-30%. That leaves 70-75% of the population that is made up of Catholics, Lutherans, Methodists, Moravians, Episcopals, Presbyterians, Muslims, etc. Even though these are all separate religious sects, the membership of all of these PLUS the non-religious population is a much higher number than the total number of evangelicals.
