We live in Steubenville. Our bishop is great and community life is good here, but I have to agree with the economy not thriving around here. I grew up here though and my family is here. I’ve been to the Witchita Diocese in Kansas and it is awesome! There is a parish St. Monica’s in Edmond, OK, that is also thriving- right near Oklahoma City, OK. I’ve heard that Lexington and Covington, Kentucky, are pretty orthodox. The bishop of Covington was actually our parish pastor in Steubenville before he was ordained bishop a few years ago. The diocese of Denver, CO, has a great bishop and there are parishes in the Denver area that are thriving. The Kansas City, MO/KS, area have different bishops, but I have friends working in both dioceses that have good things to say about it. St. Paul, MN, has a community connected with the diocese- I can’t remember the name of it at the moment. And the diocese of Sioux Falls, SD, also ranks up on top. I guess all of these dioceses are based on personal opion, experience, and word of mouth from friends. But hope that it helps.
