Hello from the DC metro area. Any Catholics down there? Traveling though in in various areas of the state at various times, we noticed a dearth of Catholic churches to attend. Is there a prejudice against Catholics? Would like to retire there as we loved everything else....but wonder if we would be 'out of place'. Thanks for any help.

Well, the Southern Baptists are the largest Christian denomination in North Carolina, but the Catholics are well represented across the state. I live in a small town with a population of around 11,000. We have one Catholic church and one Catholic school for pre-kindergarten through the 8th grade. The larger the area the more you'll find. Of course, Belmont Abbey College is located in Belmont, NC. and has been in operation for 130 years.

Here's a list of parishes mostly in the eastern part of NC.

Thanks for your help! We like to try to attend daily mass when traveling and one problem I noticed was that many of the catholic churches didn't have a regular daily morning mass scheduled....unlike our area. Will check out that Belmont Abbey...haven't been there. Thanks again...Oliver
