As faith communities in the United States grow increasingly more diverse, many churches are turning to the shared parish, a single church facility shared by distinct cultural groups who retain their own worship and ministries. The fastest growing and most common of these are Catholic parishes shared by Latinos and white Catholics. Shared parishes remain one of the few institutions in American society that allows cultural groups to maintain their own language and customs while still engaging in regular intercultural negotiations over the shared space. This book explores the shared parish through an in-depth ethnographic study of a Roman Catholic parish in a small Midwestern city demographically transformed by Mexican immigration in recent decades. Through its depiction of shared parish life, the book argues for new ways of imagining the U.S. Catholic parish as an organization. The parish, argues Brett C. Hoover, must be conceived as both a congregation and part of a centralized system, and as one piece in a complex social ecology. The Shared Parish also posits that the search for identity and adequate intercultural practice in such parishes might call for new approaches to cultural diversity in U.S. society, beyond assimilation or multiculturalism. We must imagine a religious organization that accommodates both the need for safe space within distinct groups and for social networks that connect these groups as they struggle to respectfully co-exist.

Nella società postmoderna sono cambiati i punti di riferimento identitari e gli individui si definiscono sempre più non in base al territorio in cui vivono, ma in base alle relazioni che sviluppano. Anche la Chiesa è toccata da questo fenomeno, perciò le multi-appartenenze, che definiscono i "nomadi spirituali" moderni, fanno sì che essi sviluppino un senso di appartenenza non più necessariamente nella Parrocchia territoriale, ma ad altre realtà definite dal principio di personalità. Il linguaggio è il nuovo criterio che determina la forma di appartenenza ad una comunità. Esso è più che uno strumento di comunicazione, è il locus theologicus, l'unico contesto dove il fedele può incontrare Dio. La Chiesa è chiamata a riconoscere in modo ufficiale anche questo criterio aggregativo, assumendo un orientamento interculturale. Una "comunità di fede" alla frontiera, come lo è la Parrocchia personale S. Pio X di Basilea Città nell' "angolo delle tre terre", cioè il punto di incontro tra la Germania, la Francia e la Svizzera, diventa un modello di una comunità transnazionale, che supera la dimensione giuridica territoriale cantonale, e con uno specifico linguaggio.

Catholics constitute the largest religious community in the United States. Yet most American Catholics have never known a time when their church was not embroiled in controversies over liturgy, religious authority, cultural change, and gender and sexuality. Today, these arguments are taking place against the backdrop of Pope Francis’s progressive agenda and the resurgence of the clergy sexual abuse crisis. What is the future of Catholicism in America? This volume considers the prospects at a pivotal moment. Contributors—scholars from sociology, theology, religious studies, and history—look at the church’s evolving institutional structure, its increasing ethnic diversity, and its changing public presence. They explore the tensions among members of the hierarchy, between clergy and laity, and along lines of ethnicity, immigration status, class, generation, political affiliation, and degree of religious commitment. They conclude that American Catholicism’s future will be pluriform—reflecting the variety of cultural, political, ideological, and spiritual points of view that typify the multicultural, democratic society of which Catholics constitute so large a part.
