Why parish boundaries matter, why parish registration doesn’t, and 5 reasons Catholic parishes are closing

In this episode of The Catholic Talk Show, the guys are joined by Fr. Josh McCarty from Pastoral Parish to discuss major problems in the parish model and why so many parishes have closed or are on a path to closure...


  1. Wrong. The lack of marriage prep is one main reason for Catholics divorcing. If people are not willing to sacrifice to get married or be taught the faith, then they really are not going to remain Catholic. I can't listen to anymore.

  2. Mass migration due to of natural disaster, war, economic strife, etc. breaks every concern discussed in this video over the preeminent rule of Charity.

  3. I would take any advice from this priest, who loves watching Game of Thrones, with a big grain of salt.
