Welcome to Catholic Churches of Manhattan

This blog comprises a 2 1/2 year journey where I visited each of the 96 Roman Catholic churches of Manhattan for a single Mass each. I have taken photos, gathered church contact info, collected Mass, confession, and prayer times.  Oh, and written some thoughts down that were going through my head at the time. Here are those journeys and that info for you, the casual church goer, devout Catholic, pilgrim, atheist, priest, nun, drunk, coward, hero or whatever you may be to use for the benefit of also finding and discovering these very holy places, these houses of God, these Catholic churches of Manhattan...

As I mentioned previously, I am going to go back and take some new photos of some of the churches I visited near the beginning of this venture when I was armed only with a Blackberry camera (such a terrible camera and device all rolled into one, except for email use that is. FYI - the new iPhone 4 camera is terrific!) Or churches that I revisit and feel moved to shoot and upload different kinds of images. I've seen my site listed on other blogs as a "photo site" which made me laugh as that was never the intention, and at the beginning taking pictures of these churches was just an afterthought.  However, over the past 3 years I did manage to take a nice shot or two and wanted to try to do justice to those churches that I originally posted only fuzzy, pixelated and blurred art. Anyways, here is a rolling list of my posts that have new images that were not part of the original posts. All new images appear at the bottom of posts, as I feel a need to preserve the original images in the original posts for posterity.
