Looking for a good parish church in Tucson


#1

Hi y’all, I hope I’m posting this in the “right” place. I’ve relocated to Tucson on what may or may not be a permanent basis - I’m caring for my elderly father, and not entirely sure how long I’ll be in Tucson, but I need to find a good parish here. We live on the northwest side of town (Casas Adobes area) and I have attended Mass at a couple of local churches, but so far have not found one that really clicked with me.

My dad (who is almost 97 years old) never joined a parish officially when he moved here 10 years ago, but attends mass at several of them. I very badly NEED a supportive church family right now. I need a parish with a priest or deacon who might offer me real spiritual direction as I’m badly conflicted and stressed out in my current situation.

Please, can any of you recommend a place I might find such a parish? I don’t mind driving across the city if need be - I’m willing to do that to get the spiritual nourishment I am sorely lacking.

Thanks in advance! :heart:
Tammy

St. Melany is tiny and very welcoming.

It’s a small Byzantine Catholic parish just of Speedway out near the eastern edge.

We go th4re when we visit my mother in law.

St. Melany the Younger is a very nice little parish and so is St. Michael the Archangel Ukrainian Greek-Catholic Church. Both Byzantine rite Churches and very friendly to visitors.

When I visited Tucson a year and a half ago, I went to St. Gianna Oratory, an operation of the ICKSP. It was nice. Good looking Church on the inside too.
