Like America itself, our country’s Catholic roots are culturally diverse. Multitudes of nationalities — Irish, Polish, English, Sicilian, Swiss, Portuguese, Lebanese, Vietnamese, Cuban, and more — settled this land and brought their Catholic traditions with them. Belgians erected tiny wayside chapels in Wisconsin. Native Americans taught early Jesuit missionaries an indigenous building style: chapels of bark. America’s oldest church isn’t American. It’s French!

Put the car in drive and let’s go!

It’s time to explore Catholic America!
