Hi! I’m currently going through the process of applying for medical residencies (which are ultimately decided by a computer “match” program, for those of you unfamiliar with the process)… places I might end up next year include Philadelphia, Charlottesville (VA), and the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area of NC. Or I might stay in the Baltimore/Washington area where I currently live (and have a great parish). Before finalizing my rank list, I was wondering what your thoughts were on the availability of good, orthodox Catholic parishes in these three areas? Thanks!!
St. Thomas Aquinas in Charlottesville and Holy Comforter in Charlottesville are both excellent. (Incarnation is out of my area and I haven’t attended there so I can’t comment)
Our Lady of Lourdes near Philadelphia.
Holy Family in Dale City, VA, and Our Lady of Angels in Woodbridge, VA. That’s about 25 miles down I-95 south from DC.
